Why Engineering Physics at APSU?
This path is designed to prepare students for careers in engineering disciplines.
What will I learn?
Engineering Physics is the interdisciplinary study of physics, mathematics, and engineering with a particular emphasis on developing advanced techniques to solve complex, real-world problems. The engineering physics curriculum includes an emphasis on engineering design, much like a traditional engineering program, while also including more advanced physics than a typical engineering degree. Engineering physicists are best suited to applying new technologies to problems in engineering design and manufacturing where established mechanical or electrical engineering approaches are inadequate. Engineering physicists typically work in high-tech industrial and manufacturing settings on teams with engineers and engineering technologists to solve real-world design and implementation problems.
What Do Engineering Physics Majors Do After Graduation?
Engineering Physics majors primarily go on to engineering-related careers after graduation such as mechatronics, mechanical, electrical, industrial, and materials engineering. Engineering Physics is also excellent preparation for graduate study in an engineering discipline or physics.
