Concurrent Physics and Electrical Engineering Major

In this degree option, you can earn a comprehensive Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in physics from Missouri State University and a BS degree in electrical engineering from Missouri S&T. 

Adding the physics major is especially helpful for electrical engineers working for defense contractors, semiconductor manufacturers, medical centers, laser companies and aerospace manufacturers. 

Degree plan

You must first complete the freshman engineering curriculum. You will then apply for admission to the electrical engineering program and begin the following curriculum. 

The following degree plan is based on the general education program instituted in fall 2014. For the previous general education requirements, please access these Student Transition Resources.
