Dear Friend,

Thank you for reaching Mera Careerguide.com

It is always important when we take up some courses, we will have to analyse what is next to help us fetch a good career.

There are many career options that you can choose based on your interest that you want to opt for? Below are some of my suggestions:

Physicists

1. Cutting Edge:

Physcists that work at the cutting edge are often driven by curiosity. They strive to answer questions like How big is the universe? or What is everything made of? Although their work doesn't always have an obvious application to everyday life, by pushing technology to the limits they are responsible for lots of useful spin offs, from new ways of sterilising food using Particle accelerators to the invention of the world wide web.

2. Space

  • The UK is second only to the USA in space science and although only a lucky few get the chance to become an astronaut, studying physics can certainly help land you a job in space.
  • You could become a cosmologist and investigate the evolution of the universe, a planet hunter who searches for habitable planets and other stars, an astrophysicist who searches for dark matter and black holes or an engineer that designs satellites or robots that land on other planets.

3. Medicine:

  • Whether you want to be a nurse, a surgeon or medical physicist - Understaning physics is important if you want to work in modern medicine.
  • Physics has revolutionised the diagnosis and treatment of illness. Surgery is now routinely carried out using lasers, Cancers is treated using radiation and the inside of our bodies are imaged using X-Rays, ultrasound, NMR and PET scans. And new techiniques such as using nanobots to target cancer cells or using infrared light to monitor our blood are continously beign developed.

4. Law and Finance:

  • The link between Physics and jobs in law & finance may not be obvious, but many people with a physics background work in these areas.
  • In Finance it is a Physics ability to model complex systems that is particularly valued, billions of pounds rest on predicting the future behaiour of global markets.
  • A Phyisics education is also important to law - Forensics requires a detailed understanding of how objects move and the forces involved when analysing the sene of a crimeor accident. Patent lawyers on the other hand need to understand new technology in order to effectively protect new inventions.

5. Music and Television:

  • Whether you want to be in front of the camera or work behind the sences, understanding physics is useful for many careers in television and music.
  • From the sound engineer who controls the mix at a concert to the special technician working on the latest movie, many of the people that work in the media industry need physics know how.

6. Environment:

  • Physics is vital to understand everything from the earth's core to the very top of the atmosphere.
  • Whether you want to be a storm chaser, investigate volcanoes for a living, develop new renewable energy technology, study how climate change is affecting the penguin populations or keep tabs on the size of the sahara desert - studying physics is the route to huge range of exciting careers in environmental science.

7. Building & Structures:

  • If you want to design building or structures for a living, a sound knowledge of physics wont go amiss.
  • After taking Physics at school or college you can then train to become an architect or a civil engineer. Architects design all sorts of buildings, everything from schools to skyscrapers. Civil engineers build the other structures that are vital for modern society such as bridges, dams and tunnels.

8. Transport:

Whether you want to design jet fighters, electric sports cars or superconductor maglev trains, physics will keep you moving in the right direction. with the advent of commercial spacelight and the need to develop more environmentally friendly ways of getting around, the future of transport is full of exciting challenges that you could get involved in.

9. Sports and Games:

I fyou want a career in whihc you design thetechnology that helps us play and compete, physics will start you on the right track.

10. Education

If yo enjoy physics and want to share your enthusiasm for the subjects with others, then perhaps a career in education is for you

11. Energy

People with a Physics will play a vital role in everything from improving existing technology to make it more energy efficient to develping new technology such as nuclear fusion reactors.

Hope this helps. If you require further infromation, you can reach us through Mera careerguide.com

All the Best!
