I am proud and honored to serve as the founding chair of the Department of Engineering Physics at Florida Poly. Our department has its roots in, and grew out from, the Department of Natural Sciences to benefit from a long-standing tradition of teaching engineering students.
Our faculty members are firmly committed to their role as educators. They are also internationally recognized researchers, with expertise in various research fields, and they are committed to involving undergraduates in their research.
Adaptation to an ever-changing job market is what we had in mind when we designed our engineering physics program. Our program is unique in providing the students with the most solid engineering background to start a career in a variety of engineering fields, such as microelectronics, aerospace, and bio-engineering. Our best students are well equipped to be admitted to post-graduate schools as well.
If you are looking for a high-quality engineering degree program that will keep you competitive in an ever-changing job market, then the engineering physics program is a good fit for you. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
