Careers in Physics

Students studying Physics at the University of Windsor have an exciting opportunity to gain skills that will prepare them for satisfying and rewarding careers worldwide. Our programs are designed to prepare students for leadership positions in both academic and industrial research, and to meet the employment and competitive needs of the Canadian high-technology industry. Our department continuously implements strategies to ensure students are prepared for new and exciting opportunities before them. 

Physicists are generally highly employable, as their ability to find original solutions to problems prepares them for work in all sub-fields of physics, as well as in high finance and economics, law, medicine, engineering, education, computer applications and business administration. Physicists are an invaluable asset in a work environment, as they are highly numerate, and have expertise both in theoretical modelling and in experimental design.  Resources for developing career management skills are provided in liaison with the Centre for Career Education.
