    Job Skills After a BS in physics, what are the skills needed for employment?

    I have, but then those employers who post an entry level engineering position ask me if I have any engineering experience even though it said entry level.

    Job Skills After a BS in physics, what are the skills needed for employment?

    Hello all, So I am looking for advice on what my next move should be after graduating with my bachelors in physics this May. I have quality engineering internship experience but every job I’ve applied to only wants to hire people with actually engineering experience and not entry level type...

    Programs Engineering vs physics major

    Thank you for your reply Choppy, and you’re right, physics should be something I like inside and out if I truly wanted to pursue it

    Programs Engineering vs physics major

    Hello everyone, I am currently a sophomore at a big university in the US and I might transfer to another university soon. I have been conflicted with choosing between physics and engineering for the past 2 years. I love astronomy and is the only academic passion I have besides earth science and...

    Engineering Physics or engineering? Going into university this fall and still unsure

    I honestly have not ruled out going for a Phd in physics. Any there actually aren't too many job postings for physics grads. And I do consider salary to be important.

    Engineering Physics or engineering? Going into university this fall and still unsure

    Yeah I was planning on continuing my physics education and possibly take engineering related classes like zz said and if I like it I'll do a master's in engineering. Thank you !

    Engineering Physics or engineering? Going into university this fall and still unsure

    I just feel like if I don't choose now I will be a little behind since the freshman and sophomore courses for engineers already consist of engineering classes rather than core classes. Also it is very hard to get into my schools engineering program so I was that's why I applied right away so I...

    Engineering Physics or engineering? Going into university this fall and still unsure

    Thanks for the reply. So are you saying go for engineering? I honestly love the advantages physics will give me at the undergraduate level even if I such as teaching me how to think and gaining research skills and then getting a master's in engineering. That way I can learn the "why" in physics...

    Engineering Physics or engineering? Going into university this fall and still unsure

    So I will be entering my big state U in two weeks as a freshman. I have down physics as my major because I have such a passion for the sciences and math however I am very torn if this is a right choice. I applied to my schools engineering school for the spring semester yet look through job...

    Programs Applied physics or engineering physics

    Yeah going in with an open mind is a good idea I'm just worried I won't be able to take a variety of different career based courses to test if I like them or not. Do you have any advice or idea about a science-y engineering field that is in demand or has a good job outlook? I got accepted to the...

    Programs Applied physics or engineering physics

    Thank you so much and I realize both fields are tough but I know for a fact there's very less jobs open for physicist to do actual physics work, and I just thought anything with "engineering" in the title would be good for the job market

    Programs Applied physics or engineering physics

    I know I see many forums with this question but I still want to know which is the better choice. I am a senior about to graduate and go to University. I originally wanted to do pure physics undergrad and possible go for astrophysics in phd but I realize getting a job in that is very hard. So my...

    Programs Applied physics degree?

    The engineering that they offer in the 3-2 program doesn't seem to interest me as much as just physics . They offer civil, electrical, mechanical and computer . I put on my application the computer one just because it's like one of the best jobs but I'm not big into computers . Plus I thought an...

    Programs Applied physics degree?

    I definitely will pursue higher than a bachelors degree so masters at least. So my original plan if I get in there was to the their 3-2 program with physics and some form of engineering and then do a masters in applied physics , how does that sound? I'm not really sure what jobs I can get with...

    Programs Applied physics degree?

    NYU, their applied physics bachelors and masters program is apart of their engineering school.

    Programs Applied physics degree?

    Is this basically engineering physics? Is this a good idea for someone who loves the concepts of physics but wants a good chance in the job market? Thank you

    Physics masters or phd?

    I honestly just want any job in physics or something where I can use my brain and think.

    Physics masters or phd?

    Thank you! I know this may be redundant but what exactly would you say is the most employable physics specialty or are you saying most can be "applied" skills.

    Physics masters or phd?

    Yeah you're right and I know I won't know until college but making cars or anything like that has never been an interest. I love math and numbers and science and want an intellectually stimulating job that I won't hate.

    Physics masters or phd?

    Well I have seen some interesting ones like mechanical and aerospace but according to the bureau of labor statistics , both those have little job growth in the best 10 years, it's like 3% job growth .

    Physics masters or phd?

    That's what I recently find out so I was going to double major in physics and computer engineering . Yet I'm not big on computers but wanted a safety net.

    Physics masters or phd?

    Just keep worrying to get on the right path but that is so true . Thank you so much.

    Thank you so much that is so true.

    Physics masters or phd?

    I really love physics, but getting a job in this field is not bright at all. Getting a phd will result in post docs and not having a permanent job until I'm 30. Should I just go for a masters and land a job in the industry ? And what job in the industry would be interesting enough for me not to...

    Engineering Astrophysics or physics/computer engineer double major?

    Choppy, thank you so much for replying. And the only reason I feel like I have to choose now is that is that I actually got accepted to the Astrophysics undergraduate program at Rutgers. What you said about specializing and closing doors too early is very helpful, so should going to Rutgers...

    Engineering Astrophysics or physics/computer engineer double major?

    Hello guys, I'm a high school senior still unsure what to do. I have a passion for astrophysics and would love to pursue a phd in it but there being a possibility of not having a permanent job by 30 is scary. Should I take the safe route and go for computer engineering and double major with...
