Career Opportunities after the Physics programme at the University of Copenhagen

  • Unemployment among physics graduates is low and physicists find work in many different places, e.g. private and public sector research, finance, programming in the IT industry or in private enterprises developing new materials, equipment or methods of analyzing. Furthermore, it is possible for all physicists to qualify for teaching at high school level.

  • Astrophysicists find employment as teachers or at observatories all over the world. There are job opportunities for bio- and medical physicists at hospitals or in the pharmaceutical industry, while geophysicists may work in the private and public sector, e.g. with environment-related problems, oil- or wind based energy or engineering.
  • The private sector also employs physicists in a more business-oriented context. For example, some physicists work in finance withprediction of market fluctuations. Other physicists are employed as programmers or developers in the IT sector as they often have strong programming backgrounds.
