B.S. in Engineering Physics Degree Plan
The Engineering Physics program degree plan takes the student through a prescribed path of engineering and physics coursework preparing him or her to be a diverse engineer with the ability to work in the computer and electrical engineering environment, the semiconductor materials environment, and/or advanced physics arena.
All engineering students start off in the Engineering program. At student orientation, students will meet with an engineering advisor. Based on data from math placement testing, SAT/ACT scores, high school experience, etc., math readiness will be determined, and the advisor assists the student with setting up the appropriate schedule, as descried on the Engineering website.
In order to be admitted into upper level ENPH coursework and declare a major in ENPH the student must complete the following fundamental math, physics and engineering courses with a grade of “C” or better:
- Foundations of Engineering 1 and 2 (ENGR 111 and 112)
- Principles of Engineering 1 or 2 (ENGR 221 or 222)
- University Physics 1 and 2 (PHYS 122 and 242)
- Calculus 1 and 2 (MATH 120 and 209)
This stopgap measure is in place to help ensure the student's foundation is strong, which is key to academic success in upper level coursework.
As the student progresses through the ENPH degree, he or she must earn a grade of “C” or better in each course listed in the catalog as “Courses Required for BS in Engineering Physics” in order to graduate with a BS in Engineering Physics. This includes all ENGR, ENPH, PHYS, and MATH courses.
