We offer two degrees, a Bachelor Science in Engineering (BSE) and a Bachelor of Science in Physics (B.S.), each with specialized tracks to prepare you to continue your study or to use your knowledge and skills in a gratifying career across a breadth of in-demand professions. In collaboration with the Department of Teacher Education, you can earn a B.S. in Physics and Math Teaching, or you can add a minor in engineering science or physics to another degree.


Engineering

From research and development to testing and production, engineers design and manage the products that improve our quality of life. Engineers improve transportation, develop better nano-technologies for healthcare, design electrical systems, protect the environment, streamline manufacturing and harness nuclear energy, among other undertakings. These careers can begin with ACU’s Bachelor of Science in Engineering, in which you’ll study and apply the laws with which God structured the universe.

The engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Physics

ACU physics students gain extensive experience as undergraduates. Not mere observers of physics research, they are active, well-trained participants entrusted with key responsibilities in their work with faculty members and international scientists at national research laboratories.
