Areas of Concentration

One of the great advantages of the Engineering Physics program at University of Wisconsin-Platteville is the ability to tailor your major. A relatively large fraction of the required credits are professional electives that can come from other engineering disciplines. You are free to design your own professional path by selecting a coherent group of electives for a concentration.

Controls

Digital systems

Explore digital electronic systems ranging from basic devices to large-scale integrated circuits.

Electric power

Understand the development and distribution of power from small scale motors and generators to larger networks such as a power grid.

Electronics

Gain expertise in basic analog and digital electronic devices and systems including amplifiers, integrated circuits, oscillators, power supplies, motor drivers, and more.

Materials

Expand your understanding of the properties and applications of different types of materials such as metals, ceramics, and plastics for mechanical components and systems.

Mechanisms, machines and systems

Design, analyze, and fabricate mechanical mechanisms and systems.
