Engineering physics (EP) is an academic degree, usually at the level of Bachelor of Science. Unlike other engineering degrees (such as aerospace engineering or electrical engineering), EP does not necessarily include a particular branch of science or physics. Instead, EP is meant to provide a more thorough grounding in applied physics of any area chosen by the student (such as optics, nanotechnology, control theory, aerodynamics, or solid-state physics). It has been suggested that double degree be merged into this article or section. ... A Bachelor of Science (B.S., B.Sc. ...

Engineeringphysics (EP) is an academic degree, available mainly at the levels of B.Sc.
Instead, EP is meant to provide a more thorough grounding in applied physics of any area chosen by the student, (such as optics, nanotechnology, control theory, aerodynamics, or solid-state physics), this is why in some countries only the B.Sc.
Engineeringphysics degrees are respected degrees taught in many countries.
