Career options for Physics graduatesby NCU Northcap University NCU - Northcap University
The rapid development of technology has enabled command of a wide variety of products and services. Homo sapiens, particularly its younger members, are so consumed by attention-seeking gadgets and ever broadening tastes that it is difficult for young people to engage with natural sciences. To put it differently natural sciences is as hot as career option relative to others like entertainment, media, IT, fashion, engineering, medicine, tourism, care industry, creative writing etc. Natural sciences seem to have taken back seat due to current technological advancement. However, as a matter of fact, natural sciences never take back seat. The very basis of technology is natural or fundamental science, without fundamental science technology nowhere exist. They are always relevant, always in demand.
Let us take a moment to reflect upon it. Do you enjoy gazing at cacophony of stars in the night? There strange-seeming pattern. Do you feel tantalized by the sight of corals amidst presence of colourful faunas? Do you feel that you could do something to better our understanding of more than 1.7 miilion SARS-CoV-2 type viruses which can enable humanity to live longer and better? Do you know that without some ground-breaking work in semiconductors the page you are reading now would have never been possible? Is not this wonderful? And who would not want to be part of it? One can do all of these things, at fundamental level, through natural sciences.
Natural sciences have infinite possibilities, ever expanding, always at the frontier of humanity’s interface with nature. They are mother of all technological innovations. Natural sciences determine the limit within which engineering and medical sciences operate. Natural sciences broaden our imagination and enable us to work, thereafter, in any field we choose.
