Year In Industry

Many of our best students choose to spend a year working in a graduate-level role.
They work on problems ranging from instrument optimisation to big-data visualisation.
Browse our Success Stories to learn just how much a student can achieve in a year.

“If you can problem-solve, you can program… it’s a logic problem… so you can give me a problem in physics, or you can give me a problem in programming, and I think about how to solve it in a very similar way… that doesn’t really change much across the two…”

James Davies, from transcript of interview with Alex Dickinson

“There’s not much in terms of equations… but that’s not to say that the skills I’ve gained through physics aren’t transferable… it’s the way you go about a problem, rather than the problem itself, which is transferable…”
