Explore the Intersections of Physics and Engineering
The greater Houston area is a thriving center for many science-intensive industries,
from aerospace to petrochemical and biomedicine. The demand for professionals with
a degree in physics is always high, and trending dramatically upward. Some of the
most dynamic areas of research are found at the junction of different science and
engineering disciplines. That’s why in addition to the B.S. in Physics plan, you have
another option: a sub-plan called Engineering Physics, a more interdisciplinary plan
specifically designed for students interested in pursuing a career in engineering.
You’ll apply the skills you’ve learned in physics while acquiring core computer-related
and problem-solving experience that will support any chosen career path – including
Within the degree, you can choose from two specializations:
- Engineering Physics
- Computational Physics
