Our Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering Physics is at the nexus of physics and specific areas of advanced or emerging technology.

It explores topics not typically covered in depth under the traditional engineering education, such as applications of optics, acoustics and materials in fields like nanotechnology, telecommunications, medical physics and devices, or advanced and electronic materials. Prospects for job growth are strong in all these fields, with median salaries just under $100,000, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The program provides desirable skills to establish your career in industry and government sector, in addition to laying a solid foundation to begin graduate studies in applied sciences or engineering.

You will take an individually designed sequence of courses in engineering such as energy systems engineering or mechanical design. You’ll also get hands-on experience working with an industry partner in a Co-op experience.

The Engineering Physics program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://
