Why Choose Engineering Physics?

The Engineering Physics program combines elements of mechanical and electrical engineering with advanced coursework in physics. As an engineer you’ll be ready to address multidisciplinary and non-traditional problems.

Our engineering physics program, accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,, is structured to develop engineers with a broad technical background and solid foundation of core courses. Specialize your degree by choosing an concentration in engineering in controls, electronics, power systems, material science, mechanisms and machines, and thermo-fluid systems, or work with a faculty member to select a set of advanced engineering electives that reflects your particular interest.

At UW-Platteville, engineering physics graduates are devoted to creating and optimizing engineering solutions through enhanced knowledge and integrated application of math, science and engineering principles. The program also provides an excellent foundation for those intending to continue their education with a graduate degree in science or engineering.
