Physics Careers

Physicists have the requirements to work in almost any field. Understanding physics is understanding the world’s natural governing laws such as motion, energy, structure, and interactions of matter. Physicists experiment with these laws by observing, measuring, interpreting, and developing theories to explain celestial and physical phenomena. New technologies are the result of a more thorough understanding of the governing properties of the natural world. Physics is needed to build bridges, explore the ocean and space, or even re-invent conventional items. Jobs requiring physicians therefore, are plentiful. A physicist can get a job as a:

  • Computer Software Engineer
  • Clinical Scientist
  • Mechanical Engineer
  • Oncology Physicist
  • Solar Energy Physicist
  • Science Journalist
