Engineering Physics

Requirements for the Major

Engineering Physics Required Courses:

CHE 117 Principles of Chemistry
CHE 180 Inorganic Chemistry
CS 151 Principles of Computer Science I
MTH 152 Calculus II
MTH 250 Calculus III
MTH 253 Differential Equations

PHY 311 Thermal Physics
PHY 313 Modern Physics
PHY 321 Experimental Physics I
PHY 331 Computational Physics I
PHY 601 Capstone I
PHY 602 Capstone II

Plus, one of the following:

PHY 351 Mechanics
PHY 352 Electromagnetic Theory

Plus, 12 semester hours from the following:

MSE 211 Statics and Mechanics of Materials
MSE 221 Principles of Electrical Engineering
MSE 231 Science and Engineering of Materials
