Where science and math collide
The engineering physics degree is designed for students who like to see what happens when you mix math, science and engineering together into one exciting field of study. Engineering physics is a physics-based engineering program that helps students bridge the gap between theoretical science and practical engineering.
If you want to apply, design and develop new solutions in engineering (or perhaps already do), then the four-year engineering physics program at SFA is the program for you.
