In this section:
The B.S. Engineering Physics degree provides extensive education in engineering as well as physics. The curriculum combines the strengths of a physics curriculum (with emphasis on understanding basic principles) and an engineering curriculum (with emphasis on applications). Graduates are especially well prepared for either graduate work in engineering or applied physics or for immediate employment by companies with an engineering research orientation. With the right electives, the curriculum provides excellent preparation for graduate work in biomedical engineering.
Lower Division Requirements:
Each course in MATH and PHYS listed above must be passed with a grade of C (2.0) or better.
Upper Division Requirements:
ELEC 301, 353, 354; MATH 355; PHYS 301, 302, 321, 322, 411, and two upper division physics electives selected from the following: 351, 361, 371, 421, 441, 461, 471. Seniors must complete the capstone experience, PHYS 480, and senior thesis, PHYS 481. Students must also take a two-course sequence in a technical area. Among the options are: ELEC 302 and ELEC 383; MECH 323 and PHYS 451; ELEC 371 and ELEC 423. To graduate, a student must have at least a 2.0 average in all upper division physics courses.
