Welcome 

The Department of Engineering and Physics at the University of Central Oklahoma is a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary learning community that provides transformative learning experiences to its students.

The department offers four undergraduate engineering programs that are each accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET:

o   B.S. Biomedical Engineering is for students interested in applying engineering principles to design and improve medical equipment, devices, and software.

o   B.S. Electrical Engineering is for students who want to apply engineering principles to develop and improve electrical components, devices, and systems.

o   B.S. Mechanical Engineering is for students who are interested in designing and analyzing mechanical systems and devices.

o   B.S. Engineering Physics is for students who are more interested in merging their engineering interests with applied science or want greater flexibility in their engineering degree.

 

The department also offers two programs in Science Education:

o   B.S.E. Science Education - Physics is for students who are interested in teaching physics at the secondary level (high school).

o   B.S.E. Science Education – Physical Science is for students who are interested in teaching physics and physical science at the secondary level (high school and middle school).

 

In addition to its undergraduate degrees, the department offers a graduate degree at the master’s level:

o   MS Engineering Physics is for students who want to enhance their undergraduate engineering or physics training through additional research and design experiences in one of the departments four emphasis areas: biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, or physics.

The faculty and staff of the Department of Engineering and Physics are committed to helping you reach your career dreams by providing dynamic courses, well-equipped accessible laboratories, strong student-centered research, and practical experience.
