Anyone here a physicist?

  1. Sep 21, 2006 #1
    Im in my last year of highschool, and am looking to go into physics. Either that or nanotech engineering. Id like to know what being a physicist is like, and what the programs are like in university. Ive read up on employement and such, but id like a direct perspective of an actual physisict. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    well, physics, unlike engineering, is a career where the higher the degree you have, the more employable you will be and the more responsibility you will carry. If you want to be a physicist then you will benefit by going to grad school.
