Physics/Engineering Dual Degree Concentration


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Sciences and Mathematics

The physics-engineering dual degree program provides an option through which SFA students may complete requirements for a major in physics, a minor in mathematics and the core of courses that are part of the pre-engineering program. Students who complete the dual degree curriculum outlined below will receive a BS with a major in physics from SFA upon transferring back sufficient semester hours (approximately 30) from the upper-division engineering program. Of these 30 hours, six hours must be advanced engineering hours. The remainder may be core courses and electives. Upon completion of the engineering program, the student will receive a BS in engineering.

Students in any of these programs should consult with their advisors to adjust the programs outlined below to meet the variations in requirements particular to the branch of engineering and the terminal university.

The Physics, Major  lists the major core requirements for this concentration.

Physics Electives


One of the following three courses (PHYS 4441/4041 are corequisites):

Advanced Engineering


Six hours of advanced engineering coursework on transfer.

General Electives


Students pursuing the specific engineering degree may include the following among their electives:

Students should contact terminal engineering schools about the compatibility of the above suggested curriculum with their program.
