Bachelor of Science (BS) in Engineering Physics
The Engineering Physics track of ACU's Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Physics prepares students for graduate work in engineering. This degree includes basic engineering study, plus the additional physics and math courses required of all ACU physics majors. Due to this strong math and physics background, graduates with ACU's engineering physics degree often find themselves better prepared for the rigors of graduate schools of engineering than their peers with undergraduate degrees in engineering.
After completing their B.S. in Engineering Physics, many ACU graduates go on to complete a master's degree in engineering, pass the state examination to become an Engineer-in-Training, gain several years of work experience at an engineering firm, and then pass a second state examination for licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE) - all steps on the path to successful careers in aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, industrial, nuclear, or other areas of engineering.
