Engineering Physics B.S.E.P.
Engineering physics is the study of the combined disciplines of physics, engineering and mathematics in order to develop an understanding of the interrelationships of these three disciplines.
Fundamental physics is combined with problem solving and engineering skills, which then has broad applications.
One advantage of this interdisciplinary knowledge - it is designed for continuous innovation which coincides well with the rapid advance of technology.
Unlike traditional engineering disciplines, engineering physics is not confined to a particular branch of physics or engineering. Instead, engineering physics is meant to provide a more thorough grounding in applied physics for a selected specialty such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, or a combination of engineering disciplines.
It is the discipline devoted to:
- Creating and optimizing engineering solutions through enhanced understanding and integrated application of mathematical, scientific, statistical, and engineering principles
- Bridging the gap between physics and practical engineering with emphasis in research and development, design, and analysis
The distinguishing feature of an Engineering Physics program is a focus on the fundamentals of physics and mathematics, both experimental and theoretical, that are at the heart of modern engineering and research and have broad applicability.
In this program students combine this physics base with a firm background in engineering or applied science.
Career paths for Engineering physics are broadly - "engineering, applied science or applied physics through research, teaching or entrepreneurial engineering".
