Physics/Engineering Dual Degree, B.S.


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 B.S. 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 B.S. 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.
