Bachelor of Science in Engineering
Engineering Physics is the interdisciplinary study of engineering and physics with a particular emphasis on solving complex, real-world problems. The engineering physics curriculum includes an emphasis on engineering design, much like any engineering program, while also including more advanced physics than a typical engineering degree. Engineering physics graduates are well suited to applying state-of-the-art technologies to problems in engineering design and manufacturing where established approaches are insufficient. Graduates of engineering physics typically work in high-tech, industrial, and manufacturing settings on teams with other engineers, scientists, engineering technologists, and management to solve real-world design and implementation problems.
The Engineering Physics major will create students who:
- Understand the fundamental areas of engineering physics (mechanics, thermodynamics, circuits and networks, and materials).
- Can apply the techniques of design, analysis and synthesis, data reduction, and computing.
- Are able to contribute in a meaningful way to the design process.
- Can communicate technical ideas.
- Learn new things.
- Can function in an engineering capacity both individually and on teams.
After graduation, Engineering Physics graduates will use these skills to secure a related professional position or to pursue advanced studies.
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- An ability to apply both analysis and synthesis in the engineering design process, resulting in designs that meet desired needs.
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
- An ability to recognize the ongoing need for additional knowledge and locate, evaluate, integrate, and apply this knowledge appropriately.
- An ability to function effectively on teams that establish goals, plan tasks, meet deadlines, and analyze risk and uncertainty.
- An ability to use computational techniques to model and solve non-analytic problems.
