The Physics Department and the College of Arts and Sciences, in coordination with the College of Engineering, offer four interdisciplinary degree programs in Engineering Physics.

Engineering Physics at NMSU is the only engineering physics degree program in New Mexico and in the Southwest. It is for students who want both to understand the fundamentals of physics and also apply science and math to real-life technical problems. Cooperative education and internship possibilities can give students hands-on work experience, which is important for students who want employment immediately after graduation.

The Engineering Physics degree from NMSU is an ABET-accredited degree, which is a requirement for most employers of engineers.  This accreditation means that our students achieve the following outcomes at the end of the program.

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Here are typical four-year schedules for each of the Engineering Physics concentrations.
