General inquiries about the BS in Engineering Physics - Mechanical Systems program may be directed toward our Engineering Physics Coordinator Dr. Morshed Khandaker. Please see below for more information.
EP-Mechanical Systems Program Educational Objectives
Graduates of the engineering physics - mechanical systems will be able to:
1) Practice as an engineer in mechanical or related fields.
2) Assume positions of leadership and greater responsibility through teamwork within an organization.
3) Sustain adherence to professional development and post graduate continuing education.
What is Engineering Physics?
Engineering Physics is an interdisciplinary engineering discipline where students gain thorough grounding in applied physics and engineering science so they are able to pursue a chosen technical area (i.e. an engineering discipline or specific applied physics area).
Engineering Physics at UCO?
At University of Central Oklahoma, the engineering physics program is designed in a way to develop a deeper understanding of the engineering fundamentals through a broad physics and mathematics program in an engineering context. Our EP curriculum is a combination of essential, electives as well as various laboratory courses. In addition, the EP program is equipped with hands-on experience with modern computers, lab facilities, and engineering workshop. This enhanced extensive knowledge can easily be integrated with the practical aspects of a conventional engineering discipline.
Engineering Physics - Mechanical Systems at UCO
The EP-MS major is designed for those students interested in Mechanical systems. The specialization courses may include courses such as mechanical design, thermal system design, electromechanical systems, and computational methods for engineers. Students in Mechanical Systems often either go directly to work as engineers in industry or attend graduate school in mechanical engineering.
You can find information for about applying to UCO at the Office of Prospective Student Services / Scholarships. This site also has information and links to scholarships offered to freshman students.
Information about scholarships available through the Department of Engineering and Physics are available on the department's scholarship page.
