Welcome to the Undergraduate Physics & Engineering Programs web site. We offer the following programs at Frostburg State University.

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

The B.S. in Engineering offers a strong core curriculum, providing broad knowledge of math, science, and engineering while flexible interdisciplinary electives allow students to concentrate in either Electrical or Materials Engineering. The B.S. in Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABETStudents also have the option to double major in physics by taking one or two additional courses.

Program Educational Objectives

Within the first few years following graduation, alumni of the FSU BS in Engineering program will:

  1. Meet expectations in engineering careers or graduate education.
  2. Demonstrate appropriate utilization of professional skills of team-work, problem solving, design, research and communication with all participants.
  3. Engage in the community through the application of knowledge of ethical obligations to society, employers, employees and peers.
  4. Engage in life-long learning to update their technical knowledge and understanding of societal and contemporary issues.

Program Outcomes
The students of Frostburg "Bachelor of Science in Engineering" program will demonstrate throughout the curriculum

  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs
  4. an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  7. an ability to communicate effectively
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context
  9. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  10. a knowledge of contemporary issues in engineering
  11. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for electrical engineering practice.

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.

Program Educational Objectives
Within the first few years following graduation, alumni of the Collaborative Mechanical Engineering program will:

  1. Meet expectations in engineering careers or graduate education.

  2. Demonstrate appropriate utilization of professional skills of team-work, problem solving, design, research and communication with all participants.

  3. Engage in the community through the application of knowledge of ethical obligations to society, employers, employees and peers.

  4. Engage in life-long learning to update their technical knowledge and understanding of societal and contemporary issues.

Program Outcomes

The students of the Mechanical Engineering Collaborative Program will demonstrate throughout the curriculum:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs
  4. an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  7. an ability to communicate effectively
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of mechanical engineering solutions in a global and societal context
  9. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  10. a knowledge of contemporary issues in mechanical engineering
  11. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for mechanical engineering practice.

Bachelor of Science 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:

  • Traditional Physics, with upper level courses in Quantum and Computational Physics
  • Engineering Physics, which allows you to extend your application knowledge with courses from the Mechanical or Electrical Engineering course list

An option to Double Major with Mathematics is available with the addition of only a few courses.
