Department of Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics



Welcome to the Department of Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics

The department offers degree programs in Mathematics (M.S., B.S., and B.A.), Physical Science (B.A.), and Systems Engineering (B.S.). The Master of Science (MS) degree program in Mathematics is carefully tailored and developed to address the needs in the region and beyond. The integral part of the program is that the graduate students are prepared to undertake research in any mathematics branch through these coursework. Students may also pursue an education track in this degree program, by choosing graduate courses from the College of Education. The department also offers minor programs in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Physics, and educational certification programs for 4th - 8th and 8th - 12th grades. In addition, we offer a pre-engineering curriculum that allows students to automatically transfer to any engineering program at Texas A&M University. Our faculty is highly qualified and devoted to serving our students and integrating their scholarship into teaching and service. Our laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art computers and instruments to facilitate both teaching and research. The department currently manages six laboratories that support the various disciplines in the department. Our goal is to prepare students to successful professional careers through the provisions of high quality educational programs and excellent learning and research environments. Our graduates find employment in a wide range of settings, including business enterprises, manufacturing plants, state and local government agencies, health-care services and service organizations.

Our Mission

The faculty and staff of the Department of Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics are committed to excellence in teaching, research, service, and outreach.
