Stephen F. Austin State University’s bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org.
Program Educational Objectives (PEO)
Graduates from the Engineering Physics program will be able to:
- Practice engineering in areas where traditional science and engineering disciplines overlap, utilizing their ability to incorporate significant computational and analytical skills in accomplishing the engineering task.
- Thrive in technical careers, graduate studies, or engineering practices using broad based scientific knowledge.
- Work effectively in diverse professional environments and multi-disciplinary projects.
- Contribute to society as ethical, socially conscious practitioners of their profession.
- Establish specifications and requirements by using engineering design and conducting experiments.
Student Outcomes (SO)
The department has adopted the following engineering student outcomes to be assessed through the undergraduate engineering curriculum. These outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program. All SFA Engineering Physics graduates should have:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- 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
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- 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
- 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
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
