Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics is designed for students who have an interest in both engineering and physics. The proposed degree program consists of courses from physics, engineering technology, mathematics, computer science, statistics and chemistry as required courses. It requires 31 credit hours of physics courses, 21 credit hours of engineering technology courses as the core requirement. In addition, the students are required to choose a track either from mechanical engineering technology, electronics engineering technology, or mechatronics engineering technology which will consist of 12 credit hours. As supporting requirements, a student will take 30 credit hours in chemistry, mathematics statistics and computer science. Therefore, the total credit hours required for the degree is 91 credit hours (in addition to the General Studies requirements).
This bachelors’ degree program is designed to produce graduates who will combine knowledge in advanced physics and engineering technology to solve problems in engineering fields. The graduates from this program will have knowledge and practical experience in designing, planning, testing, evaluating, reporting, as well as process management and problem solving skills. A graduate in engineering physics will:
1. Be able to gain employment in engineering, technical, or leadership careers where they continue to enhance their knowledge in mechanical or electronics engineering disciplines.
2. Be able to pursue graduate studies in physics, engineering or applied physics.
