The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics is offered in cooperation with the School of Engineering. The proportions of courses taken in these two areas are roughly equal. Today’s engineer must be able to understand and apply new and changing technologies which arise from advances in fundamental science. Pacific engineering physics graduates have a firm understanding of the fundamental physics upon which modern technologies are based. He or she is able to use advanced mathematical methods and problem solving techniques to relate new ideas and scientific developments to practical problems in engineering. By acquiring skills applicable for lifelong learning, the Pacific engineering physics graduate is well prepared for a competitive career. Students who pursue a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics degree are subject to all of the requirements of an engineering degree student. Among these requirements is a work experience component called the Cooperative Education Program. Students must complete 32 units of full-time work experience in order to graduate. The Engineering Physics curriculum is designed to educate students to work in areas where technology is changing rapidly and where the boundaries of several traditional engineering disciplines overlap. These areas include sensors, robotics, energy, and semiconductor materials particularly in nano-scale electron devices. The curriculum develops sufficient depth in both engineering and science to produce graduates who are able to relate basic knowledge to practical problems in engineering. The physics engineer is a person with the training of an applied physicist that can function as an engineer with a deeper understanding of physics. Engineering Physics Program Educational Objectives Through their careers in engineering or related profession, Pacific graduates are expected to demonstrate the following within a few years of earning their Bachelor's degree in Engineering Physics: Competency in an engineering or science profession via promotion to positions of increasing responsibility, publications, and/or conference presentations Adaptability to new developments in science and technology by successfully completing or pursuing graduate education in engineering or related fields, or participating in professional development and/or industrial training courses Students graduating with a BS in Engineering Physics will have: an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
