Engineering Physics

The Master of Engineering in Engineering Physics program is exciting, emphasizing the accretion of the student’s physics and engineering skills. This is a continuance of the Department of Physics and Astronomy’s innovative Engineering Physics discipline.

Specialized courses in the student’s research interest and allied fields precede a written thesis. M.S. degree candidates must pass an oral exam on the thesis work. A non-thesis option requiring 36 course credits is also available.
