The engineering physics program combines elements of mechanical and electrical engineering with advanced coursework in applied physics. UW-Platteville’s engineering physics program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org, and is structured to develop engineers with a broad technical background and solid foundation of core courses. This multidisciplinary program includes a rich combination of applied physics, electrical, and mechanical engineering. Students graduate with a broad skill set and are able to tackle engineering problems ranging from mechanical design, electronics, programming, modeling, to testing; complemented with sound communications and teaming skills.
Specialize your engineering physics degree by choosing a concentration in engineering—controls, electronics, power systems, material science, mechanisms and machines, or thermo-fluid systems. Or, work with a professor to select a set of advanced engineering electives that reflect your particular interest.
You’ll learn in small classes from experienced professors who get to know you. Hands-on learning opportunities bring you practical experience and skills employers want. And many opportunities for internships give you the real-life skills employers demand. Plus, since tuition at UW-Platteville ranks among the lowest in Wisconsin, you can graduate with much less student debt than your peers in comparable engineering physics programs at other universities.
