Careers or Further Progression...
A wide range of careers exist for physics graduates, many of them using the methodology of physics: technical know-how, the logical approach, problem solving skills. Physic graduates work in well-paid physics-based industries such as the critical and growing areas of medical physics, bioengineering and medical devices, and also the electronics industry, alternative energy development and telecommunications. Their analytical skills also place physicists in demand in a range of financial, fund management and research roles, in the law, in management consultancy, as weather forecasters, computer programmers and as physics and science teachers.
