It’s difficult to accurately describe the diversity of careers that exist for students of physics, but we can say this much—the skills you will learn studying physics will open doors in all directions. The basis in problem-solving, analysis, and the communication of complex ideas, combined with a solid grasp of “how the world works” are career skills that transfer beyond measure.
Gregory McGill, dual degree engineering, 3M Control SystemsThe physics and astronomy department was instrumental in my development and helped to prepare me for what I would experience in my future career. I walked away with many friendships—not only classmates, but many of the professors and other staff. I am grateful for the time I spent at UWEC.
When students begin a life studying physics, the big dream out there is often NASA, as an astronaut, a researcher, an engineer. Susan Lederer had those same goals as a young Blugold. Read about how she made it all happen and now calls NASA home.Susan's NASA career
