Welcome to the Undergraduate Physics & Engineering Programs web site. We offer the following programs at Frostburg State University.
Bachelor of Science in Engineering
Strong core curriculum provides broad knowledge of math, science, and engineering while flexible interdisciplinary electives allow students to choose one of the following concentrations:
The B.S. in Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Students also have the option to double major in physics by taking one or two additional courses.
Mechanical Engineering (ME)
Frostburg State University (FSU) and the University of Maryland, College Park (UM) are collaborating to offer an innovative program in mechanical engineering on the FSU campus. Collaborative engineering students complete their four-year study on the FSU campus and receive a BS degree in ME from University of Maryland.
Physics, math, general education, and introductory engineering courses offered at FSU. Starting from junior year, students meeting transfer admission criteria are admitted to UM but continue their study on FSU campus. In junior and senior years, some of the lectures are offered from UM via Interactive Video Network. FSU faculty members teach all courses with a lab or project component. The Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Bachelor of Sciences in Physics
Whether entering the job market or continuing on to a Graduate degree, an undergraduate degree in Physics has been shown to prepare you for anything in a science or mathematics based future. The core curriculum at FSU will prepare students to choose one of two concentrations:
An option to Double Major with Mathematics is available with the addition of only a few courses.
