Employability The College of Science - Physics Physics Case Studies Dr Peter Watkeys MPhys in Physics, PhD in Experimental Physics After receiving offers to study physics at numerous universities I decided that Swansea was definitely the place for me. The campus is a wonderful, friendly place. A fantastic location close to the sea, and a great place if you are interested in pursuing sporting interests alongside your studies. For me the close proximity of the athletics track and the fantastic gym facilities were a massive positive. My four year MPhys course was such a fantastic time for me that I decided I wanted to extend my stay in Swansea and fortunately was taken on for an Experimental PhD under Professor Michael Charlton. I credit the staff of the physics department; the course structure; and the University as a whole for enabling me to get a job offer from the first company which I interviewed with - starting the job less than a week after my viva - as an Experimental Physicist/Modeller for a Government defence contractor. Studying Physics at Swansea University will give you detailed insight into the fundamental laws underlying all of Nature - from quantum mechanics, describing quarks and gluons, to Einstein’s theory of gravity, relevant for the Universe on cosmological scales. Along the way you will learn a number of indispensable skills for life, which will make you well prepared for what comes after graduation. Our physics students excel in: Problem solving - Studying physics gives you a pragmatic and analytical approach to problem solving. You break down tasks to basic elements and use imagination and creativity to solve challenging problems. Reasoning - You are trained in constructing logical arguments, applying analytical skills and grasping complex problems. Numeracy - You will be highly skilled in employing mathematics to solve scientific problems, create mathematical models and interpret and present information graphically. Practical skills - During lab sessions and in project work you plan, execute and report on experiments, using advanced technical equipment. Attention to detail is crucial. Communication - Tutorials, joint practical work and final-year presentations will teach you to communicate complex ideas and use technical language correctly and efficiently. Information and communication technology - The use of computers and digital tools, with highly specialised software packages, is fully integrated, and access to high-performance computing resources is provided.
