Academics - Engineering Physics

Engineering Physics is a curriculum in applied science, including a carefully chosen sequence of engineering electives in one of the traditional engineering fields. The science and mathematics of engineering are emphasized. The Engineering Physics program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012 – telephone: (410) 347-7700. Our Engineering Physics Program is the only accredited engineering physics program in New England.

Educational Objectives of the Engineering Physics Program

The educational objectives of the program are to provide students with:

  • A sound knowledge of the fundamental principles of engineering and physics, together with an appropriate mathematical background for these subjects.
  • Problem solving experience in engineering and physics, in both the classroom and the laboratory learning environment.
  • An understanding of the role of the engineer/scientist in today’s society.

Preparation also includes an introduction to the humanities, social sciences, communications and raising sensitivity to issues of ethics and professional practice.

The program encourages majors to participate in student professional organizations, including the Society of Physics Students, the Society of Women Engineers and the various student societies within the student’s chosen engineering field.  In addition, majors frequently qualify for membership in the honor societies Sigma Pi Sigma and Tau Beta Pi, among others.
Engineering concentrations through the College of Engineering:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Civil and Environmental Engineering
  • Biological Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Spatial Information
