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).
The B.S. in Engineering Physics is accredited by ABET.
General inquiries about the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics program may be directed toward the Engineering Physics Director, Abdellah Ait Moussa, Ph.D.
At the 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. The curriculum is a combination of essential, electives as well as various laboratory courses. In addition, the 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.
