Program Statements

Program Educational Objectives

The program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation. The program educational objectives as adopted by the Department are as follows:

  • Completing or successfully progressing towards completion of an advanced degree in graduate or professional school
  • Using their analytical, problem solving and communications skills to conduct research or contribute to technology development projects, either individually or as a team member
  • Using their background knowledge in physics and engineering fundamentals as a foundation for developing new knowledge and experience in their chosen disciplines.

Student Outcomes

The Engineering Physics program has adopted the program outcomes listed in Criterion 3 of the ABET criteria for Accrediting Engineering Programs. These outcomes prepare the students to attain the program educational objectives.

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

The Engineering Physics Bachelor of Science program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
