Engineering Physics

2 years in Madrid + 2 years in St. Louis, MO, USA

"Come and see how physics can help you understand the world we live in!"

Dr. Javier Gamo
Physics Professor

physicsThe engineering physics program prepares students for a broad range of careers requiring scientific and technical knowledge, and is ideally suited for students who have an interest and aptitude for both physics and engineering.

The goal of the program is to prepare students to apply the problem-solving approach and principles of physics to solutions for engineering problems at the forefront of science and technology.

Students completing this program combine the physics education of our traditional bachelor's degree with a concentration in one of the engineering areas offered by Parks College: aerospace, biomedical, computer, electrical or mechanical engineering.

Engineering physics graduates work in applied research at the intersection of physics and engineering. Possible career paths include environmental engineering, patent lawyer and research scientist.

Engineering Physics Program Objectives

  • Teach students to apply the principles and problem-solving approaches of physics to solve engineering problems.
  • Prepare students for graduate study in one of several engineering disciplines as well as in physics.
  • Prepare students to work as qualified engineering professionals in areas where traditional engineering disciplines and physics overlap.
  • Educate students to be aware of their societal responsibilities as ethical and socially conscious individuals within their profession.
  • Empower students to make ethical decisions for a sustainable and responsible society.


Unique Features of the Program

  • The program combines the physics education of our traditional B.S. degree with a concentration in one of the engineering areas offered at Parks. Students may select a concentration in aerospace, biomedical, computer, electrical or mechanical engineering.
  • An interdisciplinary option gives students the opportunity to explore various engineering fields before choosing a focus area. 
  • Each student completes a senior design project, typically as a member of a multidisciplinary team.
  • The engineering physics program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (EAC of ABET).
  • Career mentoring to orient students on suitable career paths.
  • State-of-the-art facilities.
  • Our students develop strong written and oral communication skills in English and Spanish.
  • Multidisciplinary training, complemented by seminars given by leading researchers and scientists in relevant fields.
