What is the field of Physics with the most overall job opportunities?

I'm majoring in physics and I still can't decide what field of physics I want to go into #physics #career #career-counseling #career-path

Thank you comment icon Best opportunities will come when you conclude your master’s in physics. Yes, you should pursue for your post-graduation if you really want to make your future bright. I knew about one of the best entrance exam, IIT JAM (Joint Admission Test for M.Sc.). All you need is to appear in this exam and qualify in it with good rank to get best institute to complete your master’s. Check out the admission procedure of JAM from <a href="https://scoop.eduncle.com/iit-jam-admission-procedure ">here</a> . RAVI

Andrew’s Answer

If you are really good, like extremely good. Teaching, researching for the physics field such as M-theory (theoretical physicist) can earn a tremendous amount of money and be famous, also might be able to get the Nobel Prize. Many other physicists work in labs setting to improve the efficiency of machines (might also involve engineering field).

Ramakrishna’s Answer

The career opportunities with Physics major are primarily three types (1) research in fundamental science - ex scientist (2) application engineer in the industry (3) teaching faculty in an academic institute or university. The # 1 and # 3 need masters degree to start career and later Ph.D for career development in future. The option #2 seems to have good opportunities in the science and tech industry for under grads and masters with Physics major. Now with Industry 4.0 or Industrial IoT (Internet Of Things) that is expected to transform physical entities such as buildings, factories, vehicles, processes, people, plants, animals etc into digital entities will throw up opportunities for physics major grads. The manufacturers of devices, sensors, instruments etc that are used to sense and measure the physical world (ex. temperature, pressure, flow rate, density, moisture, humidity etc) , system or solution providers with hardware and software to sense, measure and communicate the physical process to transform in to Cyber Physical World (CPS) for better automation and manageability require Physicists and engineers with physics major in designing, developing and manufacturing those systems.

The future Quantum Computing technology may provide opportunities for quantum physicists in designing new computer systems and new chip wafer fabrication technologies.

The other great opportunity for Physics major students is in the area of photonics and imaging. The light based or related electronics, lens design for new imaging and display devices, holograms, Optical Switching, Laser instruments are evolving and gaining large scale development.

In my opinion, Physics major with electronics specialization will have wide variety of career opportunities in the industry, scientific research and academic filed.
