Physics, Mathematics & Space Science

Many people with advanced knowledge of maths and physics will work in academia, researching and teaching. But as the human world becomes increasingly dependent on technology there are more and more sectors demanding maths knowledge. For example, finance and tech companies need people with advanced maths knowledge and the abilities learnt from physics. Space science is a bigger sector in Europe than people realise, with many companies connected to the European Space Agency involved in research and manufacturing, creating opportunities for maths and physics graduates.

Mathematical formulae and algorithms are used to solve problems in many different sectors. Many people with strong levels of knowledge and skills in physics and maths work as teachers and researchers in academia. But there is also a wider range of careers open to people with these skills in areas as varied as manufacturing, engineering, banking and financial services, ICT and Public Service. Space science and technology is somewhat more niche as it relates to careers such as astronomers and developers of spacecrafts and equipment required to explore the universe.
