I am the father of an excellent young man. He is a junior in high school and is starting to look at colleges and possible majors. His natural interest is in pure physics, but he is smart enough to realize that engineering provides more career opportunities. Since money is an issue with his mother and I, we are both blue collar types, and assisting him with paying for college is going to be difficult even with scholarships. My question. Our state university, the University of Maine, offers a BS in Engineering Physics. What the heck is Engineering Physics? The faculty brags that it is one of the few ABET accredited Engineering Physics degrees in New England. What does that mean? He appears to be interested in Mechanical Engineering if a Physics degree doesn't make financial sense. Thank you for your input.
