B.S. in Engineering Physics

The Engineering Physics program was a broad engineering degree from which the Electrical and Mechanical degree have evolved. However the Engineering Physics program has been terminated effective 2017-2018. For more information, view the B.S. in Mechanical Engineering degree page.


Our ABET accredited Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Physics provide students with the skills needed for employment as an engineer in the high-paying, high-technology fields related to the Mechanical Engineering industries, as well as advanced research and graduate studies. Students who graduate with this degree have a well-rounded, applicable engineering skill set, which includes elements such as:

  • Design
  • Implementation
  • Proficiency in industry standard tools, including Matlab and LabView
  • Communication/teaming skills

Designed With You in Mind

Our curriculum is designed to provide students with hands-on laboratory experiences, computer simulation, and modern analytical tools that are used to develop innovative solutions regarding mechanical engineering problems. We cover a wide range of topics, such as:
