Physics Department: Annual Careers Fair

In March, the Physics Department held their annual Careers Fair here at Swansea University. A number of recent graduates attended and gave presentations to students from across the college of Science as a teaser-taster to their personal history and their companies. At this well attended event, speakers not only talked about the technical skills they had acquired whilst studying here, but also what they had gained to prepare them for their graduate job, post-graduation. 

We were visited by representatives (mostly Swansea alumni) from:“AWE”, Amplifi Group, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports, Laser 2000, Newport, LexisNexis Risk Solutions, Frauscher Sensor Technology and the Institute of Physics. This was followed by a fair where our students could get more details from the different guests - and discuss career options and choices. 

After the event we spoke to some of our graduates to give us a summary of what they felt they had gained in regard to employability whilst studying a physic degree here at Swansea University – please take a look and hear what our graduates had to say:
