Why Study Engineering Physics
Students who are interested in an engineering career but also want a broader scientific
background than traditional engineering disciplines, this is the major for you.
APSU's BSE degree program in Engineering Physics is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. ABET accreditation enhances your employment opportunities and graduation from an is the first step toward professional engineering licensure in the State of Tennessee.
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, like all engineering programs, 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.
Department faculty have expertise in a variety of areas including Materials Science
& Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computational Science. Which assists students with participation in the final capstone experience
course as well as completing the mandatory Fundamentals of Engineering exam.
What Will I Learn?
- Ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors. -- 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 function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
- An ability to use computational techniques to model and solve non-analytic
