Your career starts here

When you study physics in the School of Science at IUPUI, you’ll be preparing for a potential career in areas such as:

  • Basic and applied research and development
  • Consulting
  • Design
  • Engineering
  • Quality control and testing
  • Teaching
  • Technical writing

Because you’ll develop a broad-based and flexible problem-solving background as part of your studies, you’ll be able to seek a career in a wide variety of fields—some of which are not directly associated with physics. The sky’s the limit. The education you get from the IUPUI School of Science can take you where you want to go.
