Aerospace Engineering Track

The Engineering Physics degree seeks to produce graduates who are broadly educated in the principles of engineering and physics, and who can perform a variety of tasks in engineering fields where traditional disciplines overlap. Students in this program may also desire to develop a more in-depth focus in a particular discipline such as mechanical engineering. Students may complete a track in mechanical engineering that gives them this emphasis by completing particular coursework within their technical electives. This is completed within the Engineering Physics degree which is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org

There are many course options in the Engineering Physics Curriculum
