The 12-13 credit hour Engineering Physics Concentration is for e+ students who would like to develop an enhanced understanding of the interrelationship between physics, math and engineering. Courses in the Engineering Physics Concentration are in addition to the e+ physics requirements that include PHYS 1110, PHYS 1120 and PHYS 1140.

Below are the credit hours required for students who choose the Engineering Physics Concentration:


  • Experimental Modern Physics (PHYS 2150) 1 credit
  • Foundations of Modern Physics (PHYS 2170) 3 credits
  • Classical Mechanics & Mathematical Methods 1 (PHYS 2210) 3 credits

Choose Two:

  • Quantum Mechanics & Atomic Physics 1 (PHYS 3220) 3 credits
  • Principles of Electricity & Magnetism 1 (PHYS 3310) 3 credits
  • Electronics for the Physical Sciences* (PHYS 3330) 2 credits

​Total Credits:

  • 12-13 credits

*Not minor applicable

Note: Beginning with the incoming class of Fall 2016, all courses in each e+ Concentration require a minimum grade of C.

Note: Earning the Physics Minor requires the addition of upper division courses.

​​Note: Some courses may have pre-requisites that do not count towards this concentration. Contact your advisor if you have any questions.
