Engineering Physics (EP)

A grade of C or better is required in MA 241, MA 242, and either PS 150 or PS 215 and PS 216 for entry into all EP courses. A passing grade in all prerequisite courses or department consent is required for entry into all EP courses.

Courses

EP 199  Special Topics in Engineering Physics  1-6 Credit

Individual, independent, or directed study of topics in the fields of applied physics, space systems, and allied engineering disciplines. Student design projects involve significant engineering design such as microgravity experiments and moon-buggy design. May be considered as an engineering elective with approval of the program coordinator.

EP 394  Space Systems Engineering  3 Credits (3,0)

Development of the fundamental principles used in the engineering and design of space systems. Several major subsystems including power, telemetry and command, communications, thermal control and guidance, navigation, and control subsystems are covered. Topics on space environmental control and life support systems, space system integration and testing, and space system operations are also discussed.
Prerequisites: AE/ME students must have a C or better in AE 313 or EP 393.
