Engineering Physics Educational Objectives

Our engineering physics program aims to educate students to become professionals with in-depth knowledge and skills in mathematics, science, and engineering to understand physical systems; to research, design, and solve problems; and to provide the foundation for graduate study and lifelong learning. Our objective is to prepare graduates who will successfully pursue:

  1. Advanced studies leading to research and/or professional careers in Engineering
  2. Advanced studies leading to research and/or professional careers in Physical Science
  3. Careers in Engineering Physics or related technical and professional fields

Enrollment and Graduates

58 undergraduate majors in Fall 2018 (not including first-year students). Our students declare a major in the Freshman or Sophomore year. 10 students earned a BSE degree in academic year 2018–19. 19 students earned a BSE degree in academic year 2017–18, and 14 in academic year 2016-17.

Engineering Physics Student Outcomes

We expect our graduates to demonstrate that they have attained the following skills:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. 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
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
