The Bachelor of Science in Physics degree secures....
Students are taught in well-equipped facilities by energetic and approachable professors dedicated to superior teaching and hands-on experience. Students have many opportunities to engage in research activities as well as two different specializations: Physics or Engineering Physics.
The Physics specialization provides a firm foundation of basic coursework in modern physics laboratory, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics and Kinetic Theory, Quantum Theory, undergraduate research and mathematical physics. In addition to graduate school, a trained physicist may enter the employment market as a research scientist.
The Engineering Physics specialization provides a firm foundation of basic coursework in modern physics laboratory, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics and Kinetic Theory, Quantum Theory, undergraduate research and mathematical physics. Those with an engineering physics background are eligible for entry-level jobs as engineers in organizations such as the Department of Defense, NASA, and the various national labs.
The Physics and Engineering Physics specialization tracks are great preparation for almost any career, because they teach students how to analyze complex problems and they give students a strong quantitative background that can be applied in any technical field.
