Hello All..This is Elsa from Freshersworld.com Welcome to our video channel on jobs and careers Today I will be talking about the career options you can have in Physics Physics is one of the fundamental sciences.
It has various applications; some of them may be interdisciplinary, in science, engineering
and technology. A person who wants to pursue his career in physics has got ample opportunities
in astronomy & astrophysics, biophysics, meteorology, nuclear physics, medical physics, geophysics,
engineering, technology, architecture etc. A career in physics merely depends upon the
person’s interest and depth of knowledge in that subject. In India, there are various educational courses
for physics like B.Sc. or B. Tech (Bachelor in Science or Technology). There are many
interesting post graduation courses like 5 years integrated M. Sc. (Master in Science)
or M. Tech. (Master in Technology). Following these, there are few opportunities available
for Doctorate degree or Ph. D in Physics. Most of the admissions to these courses take
place after successfully passing the screening tests. If not the screening tests, the candidate
is required to secure more than or equal to the stipulated percentage in his 12th grade.
For B. Tech, JEE score is taken into consideration along with completion of 12th grade. Prestigious institutes like IISc (Indian Institute
of Science, Bangalore), TIFR (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai), JNU (Delhi),
IIST (Indian Institute of Space science and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram), Satyendra
Nath Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata provide various courses in Physics.
It is also important for candidate to see from where he is completing his education
in Physics. In fact, this is one of the criteria during job recruitment.
Some distance learning courses by IGNOU (Indira Gandhi Open University) or other distance
learning Open Universities are also available for those who are working but wish to learn
Physics and get required qualification. There are many foreign universities which
are offering brilliant graduation and post graduation courses in Physics. As in foreign
universities, especially in the US, more thrust is given upon interdisciplinary education.
Universities like John Hopkins, Stanford, Columbia, Cornell, Caltech or University of
Maryland are actively providing courses in Physics. Therefore, a candidate can collaborate
with other interesting subject along with Physics. For example: Physics with Medical
Engineering Some foreign universities even provide online
courses in Physics to which, anyone in the world can apply. A Physicist can get job in either academics or in industry. In academics, a candidate
can get a job of lecturer, teacher, professor etc. Other jobs are like laboratory technician,
librarian etc. In industry or research organisations, a Physicist can get job as a scientist, Atomic
technician, Biomedical Engineer, Medical physicist, Geophysicist, Nanotechnologist, Nuclear Physicist,
Optics & laser technician, Plasma particle technician, Robotics technician, Space physicist
etc. A physicist is employed by research and development
centres, industries or educational institutions. Well known institutes are as given below:
• Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO)
• Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune
• Indian Astro-physics Institute, Bengaluru • Aryabhatta Research Observatory, Nainital
• Nuclear Fuel Campus, Hyderabad • Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai
• Institute for Plasma Research, Ahmedabad • Physics Institute, Bhubaneswar
• Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad • Tata Institute of Fundamental Research,
Mumbai • Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO),
Bangalore • Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata There are many more big and small institutes
