Physics has shaped our view of the universe and the world around us by exploring the basic concepts of space, time, and matter. Physics not only lays the foundation for all other natural sciences and many engineering disciplines but is also a fundamental part of modern technology. At the same time, simulations and experiments in many areas of research and especially in physics generate vast amounts of data. To fully use this data and extract meaningful insights, advanced methods of data science including machine learning are essential. These tools have countless further applications in almost all aspects of daily life.

Physicists are the all-rounders among natural scientists. About two-thirds work on advancing our scientific knowledge or developing new technologies, products, and processes. Research positions are found in research centers, scientific institutes, and universities. In industry, physicists work in fields like IT, software development, electronics, lasers, optics, and semiconductors. Increasing demand for physicists comes also from the sector of medical technology. Another large fraction of physicists holds faculty positions at universities and colleges or work in other branches of education.
Solid, demanding and transdisciplinary study program with employability focus and excellent career perspectives: A Constructor University BSc in Physics and Data Science provides a solid and at the same time flexible foundation for careers in diverse fields, from basic research to engineering and life sciences, to finance and management. The scientific knowledge, problem-solving skills, and social skills acquired during the studies of physics at Constructor University guarantee success in our increasingly technology-driven society, as demonstrated by our many very successful graduates.
Highest academic standards: The physics curriculum at Constructor University is designed to ensure that graduates will be well-prepared for postgraduate programs in physics and related fields at world-wide leading universities. The Physics and Data Science program is oriented along the guidelines of the Konferenz der Fachbereiche der Physik (KFP) in Germany, the Institute of Physics (Britain) for BSc in Physics, and the topics required for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) physics test. Here, Constructor University Physics and Data Science BSc graduates have an excellent placement record in the top graduate programs.
Developing your personal skills and thinking abilities: The broad training in analytical skills, technical thinking and the appreciation of complexity and subtlety allows physicists to work - often with an additional qualification - as management consultants, patent attorneys, market analysts, or risk managers. Many BSc degree recipients go on to graduate school in physics and other fields, as careers in research and development usually require a postgraduate degree.
International network: Very helpful for career development is also the opportunity for international network building with Constructor University Physics and Data Science students coming from more than a hundred different nations. Good communication skills are essential, since many physicists work as part of a team, have contact to clients with non-physics backgrounds, and need to write research papers and proposals. These skills are particularly well developed in the broad and multidisciplinary undergraduate program at Constructor University.
The Career Services Center (CSC) as well as the Constructor University Alumni Office help students in their career development. The CSC provides students with high-quality training and coaching in CV creation, cover letter formulation, interview preparation, effective presenting, business etiquette and employer research as well as in many other aspects, thus helping students identify and follow up rewarding careers after their time at Constructor University. Furthermore, the Alumni Office helps students establish a long-lasting and worldwide network which comes in handy when exploring job options in academia, industry, and elsewhere.
