Overview: Engineering Physicists are involved in designing, developing, and supervising the construction of new and often unique devices utilizing basic scientific information.
Curriculum: The curriculum satisfies the requirements for a minor in Engineering Mathematics and has essentially the same physics content as our traditional B.S. degree. Students may select a concentration in aerospace, biomedical, computer, electrical, or mechanical engineering, or choose the interdisciplinary option detailed below. Each student completes a senior design project, typically as a member of a multidisciplinary team.
Faculty: The low student-to-faculty ratio allows our world-class faculty to inspire our students, feed their curiosity, awaken their minds and to instill in them the joy of lifelong learning.
Careers: Engineering Physics is an academic program that prepares students for careers in technology research and development requiring more physics than found in traditional engineering programs along with enhanced analytical, computational, and laboratory skills.
Engineering physics graduates work in applied research at the intersection of physics and engineering. The program is designed for those students who have a strong interest in physics combined with the desire to acquire the skills and perspective of the engineering realm. A goal of the program is to prepare students to apply the principles and problem-solving approaches of physics to the solution of engineering problems at the forefront of science and technology.
Internships: Whether you are a current student or an employer, Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology offers comprehensive assistance throughout the internship and cooperative education process. Our online job/internship database contains approximately 380 employers and more than 500 industry contacts within industries that employ Parks College students.
Students will find individual attention with the help of two career services professionals (a part-time Career Counselor and a full-time internship and cooperative education coordinator), guidance throughout the process from resume writing to accepting the offer, 24 hour access to internship and cooperative education opportunity listings, and academic assistance and personal support during the experience.
