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. APSU’s Engineering Physics major is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. The engineering physics curriculum includes an emphasis on engineering design, while also including more advanced physics than a typical engineering degree.  Engineering physicists are well suited to applying new technologies to problems in engineering design and manufacturing where traditional engineering approaches may be 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. A minor is not required, though a mathematics minor is suggested (3 additional hours in mathematics at the 3000 or higher level required for a mathematics minor). All upper-level engineering courses (3000 or higher) require prerequisites to be passed with a grade of C or better for registration.
