B.S. 工程物理


“工程”的字面意思是“让事情发生”. 在一个非常基本的意义上,工程学 is the practical application of science and mathematics to solve problems. 传统上, 工程是基础设施. 众所周知,工程师能够建造桥梁和车辆 that got us from one location to another more efficiently.

In today’s world, engineering is acknowledged as a discipline that also creates technology 以及让十大正规彩票平台的生活更轻松的产品. 几乎十大正规彩票平台生活的方方面面都有 somehow been influenced by engineers – the products created in factories; the buildings we live in; the water we drink; the computers we surf the net on; medical services and technologies we rely on; the appliances and vehicles. 什么都没有限制 工程师可以做.

根据美国物理学会, 60%的物理专业学生 graduate and go on to gain employment in some sort of engineering position. 物理 students often make better engineers because they are more mathematically trained and have a broader critical thinking and problem solving skill set to meet the challenges 一个不断变化的技术景观.

As far as having the ability to do engineering, I find that physics students have more rigor and do quite well in an engineering program.

大多数学生是在 错误的 impression that you can’t come to an institution like 十大靠谱彩票平台, study traditional physics or engineering physics and still become a Professionally Licensed Engineer. Yet, according to Article 8 of the Arkansas State Requirements for Licensure as a 专业的工程师*:

To be eligible for licensure as a professional engineer, the applicant shall supply 经批准的教友教务委员会的毕业证明; 或同等†, engineering curriculum of four (4) years or more and with a specific record of an additional four (4) or more years of progressive engineering experience of a grade and character which indicates to the Board that the applicant may be competent to practice and has experienced increased engineering responsibilities.

†The phrase “或同等” will be defined by the Arkansas Board as:

a. those who have both a degree from a non EAC of ABET undergraduate engineering or 工程技术项目 a graduate engineering degree from an institution that offers an EAC of ABET accredited undergraduate degree in the same discipline as the graduate degree; or


b. those who have a degree or degrees from a non-accredited program(s) have had their official transcripts evaluated and found acceptable by a Board-approved organization such as NCEES or have made up any deficiencies identified by the evaluation with courses offered by an EAC of ABET accredited degree program 或同等.

定义 b indicates that a student can get an undergraduate degree in physics and then enter a graduate program in the area of interest at an accredited engineering school and still be on a pathway to becoming a Professionally Licensed Engineer. 其他州 have similar alternate pathways to becoming a Professionally Licensed Engineer. In many ways, this may be a preferred path to students as most employers will often pay 让员工参加技术课程. 因此,不会有额外的费用 to the student for getting a Master’s degree in engineering on the way to becoming 注册工程师. In addition, a student could very well gain the needed experience for licensure through employment while attending classes. 目前的估计表明 ~20% of all engineers go on to become a 专业的工程师**.

Our engineering physics degree is specifically designed to rigorously prepare students for a technical career in industry, perhaps as an engineer, analyst or consultant. We prepare students by developing their critical thinking and problem solving skills in the classroom and through on or off campus research opportunities. 十大正规彩票平台争取 excellence in and out of the classroom so that our majors can achieve any of their 长期的职业梦想.

注意我: Students accepted into graduate programs in engineering must complete the requirements of a specific program of choice at the engineering graduate school. 一个硕士学位 in Engineering is awarded upon completion of the graduate course of study. 十大靠谱彩票平台 students have used this track to earn Master’s degrees from graduate programs at Texas A&M University, Southern Methodist University, the University of Texas and the University 阿肯色.

备注二: Some University 阿肯色 graduate programs require an undergraduate engineering degree from an accredited engineering school for entry into its graduate program (such 机械工程). If a student wishes to attend graduate school at the University 阿肯色 and finds their desired Master’s program requires an undergraduate engineering degree, our dual degree option would be the preferred path a student should take.

备注3: Most engineering graduate schools have competitive programs with limited admissions 要求本科平均成绩不低于3分.0或更高,大多数人承认 学生在3岁左右.75或更好的.

注4: This degree, along with most other undergraduate and graduate engineering degrees, 将需要 the regular study and use of upper level mathematics, such as Calculus or Differential 方程.
