B.S. in Engineering Physics

Engineering Physics


Programs - June 26, 2018
B.S. in Engineering Physics The engineering physics major is intended for students interested learning physics, but with an inclination towards using physics in an applied setting. This major, like the regular Physics major, provides a rigorous grounding in fundamental physics, critical thinking and creative problem solving, and provides broad practical training in science and technology. The addition of Systems Engineering courses gives students practical experience with the processes of design, development, and deployment that are used in real-world applications. Engineering…

Physics Degree with Teaching Licensure

Physics Degree with Teaching Licensure


Programs - June 26, 2018
Physics Degree with Teaching Licensure Adding a Secondary Teaching Licensure component to your physics major prepares you for teaching physics at the secondary level (grades 7-12). See the Department of Education site for requirements for students seeking licensure in physics. Students must meet both the requirements for a B.A. in physics and the requirements for teacher licensure. To be recommended for licensure a student must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better, have a 2.5 grade point average in the teaching…

Physics/Engineering 3+2 Cooperative Degree

Physics/Engineering 3+2 Cooperative Degree


Programs - June 26, 2018
Physics/Engineering 3+2 Cooperative Degree This major allows you to pursue a physics major while at Otterbein and complete an engineering degree at a cooperating institution. This program gives you the opportunity to study at Otterbein for three years and then pursue engineering for two more years at either Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio or Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri (your choice). At the end of five years, you will earn a B.A. in physics from Otterbein and…
