Engineering Physics, B.S.


Requirements for the major in engineering physics, B.S. program


Coordinators: Hoda Abdel-Aty-Zohdy (SECS) with, Andrei Slavin (Physics)

The program in engineering physics is offered jointly by the School of Engineering and Computer Science and the College of Arts and Sciences. This program blends the pure and applied, the theoretical and practical aspects of scientific knowledge into a meaningful educational experience. Through the university’s cooperative education program, engineering physics students may opt to combine a relevant work experience with their formal education.

Course requirements (minimum of 128 total credits)

To earn the degree of Bachelor of Science with a major in engineering physics, students must complete a minimum of 128 credits, demonstrate writing proficiency (see Undergraduate degree requirements) and meet the following requirements:

General education (excluding mathematics and science) – 28 credits


Professional Depth areas – 12 credits


The following two depth areas are offered as typical. Select 12 credits from one of these. Students with different interests can construct different depth areas in consultation with the program coordinators.

Performance Requirements and Additional General Education Notes


In addition to the previously stated requirements, satisfactory completion of the program requires an average grade of at least 2.0 in the engineering and computer science courses and also in the mathematics and science courses taken to meet program requirements. Students in this program are not required to complete the college distribution requirement of the College of Arts and Sciences.
