Physics graduates follow careers in research, and in areas such
as telecommunications and photonics there is a high demand for
qualified physicists. As Physics teaches you how to solve problems
and equips you with mathematical and information technology
skills, a vast range of other career options are available.
Some of these include scientific sales and management; teaching
at schools, TAFE and universities; and the Commonwealth and
State Public Service. UNSW Physics graduates have also made
successful careers in industries such as manufacturing, communications,
computing, electronics, finance, and biomedical technology.
It is now common for people to have several very different
careers during their life. A university degree should not
just train you for your first job, but teach you skills
that you will use for the next forty years. A Physics degree
teaches you how to analyse and solve problems, to work
in a team with others and to think critically and creatively;
all valuable skills that you will use in every career you
