What do physicists actually do? More than you ever imagined! Physicists put their knowledge of fundamental underlying scientific principles to practical use in fields like electronics, optics, communications, aerospace and medicine. Computers, GPS, and CD players, while commonplace today, all sprang from early technologies developed by physicists. Physicists lead the way in almost every new technology. They are well paid, and there is no shortage of career opportunities. Industries of all types are scanning graduating classes for bright problem-solvers with broad technical understanding—exactly what the physics department at APSU produces.
