Physics provides a foundation for all other sciences. The skills and knowledge gained in physics are also helpful in several non-science related disciplines such as business and social work.

As a career, physicists put their theoretical knowledge of science to practical use in many high tech industries, such as electronics, robotics, communication, aerospace technology and medicine. There's no limit to what you can do with a solid foundation in physics!
