Mechanical Engineering and Physics, B.S. Dual Degree


The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science offers a dual degree opportunity with the Department of Physics and Optical Science. The dual degree is designed to broaden and enhance the education of students in the engineering degree program. Students can obtain a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering  and B.S. in Physics  dual degree.

To obtain a dual B.S. degree in both Mechanical Engineering and Physics, undergraduate students must complete all requirements for the B.S.M.E. degree as established by the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science.

In addition, students must complete 12 hours of upper-division PHYS courses specified by the Department of Physics and Optical Science.  A B.S. in Physics under this program will be awarded at the same time as the B.S.M.E.  The B.S. Physics degree will not be awarded in advance of the engineering degree.

Additional Required Courses (12 credit hours)


Note:


*A list of approved PHYS Electives is available from the Department of Physics and Optical Science.
