Engineering Physicists find employment in a large variety of areas. With a background in EP, you could find yourself designing new photonics devices, developing a new microscope system, building and testing remote sensing equipment, creating ‘smart’ or self-assembling materials, simulating microelectronics processes, or inventing microscopic or nano machines. In these capacities, you could be working with a team composed of Engineers from other disciplines, scientists or medical professionals. Engineering Physicists perform research and development in high-tech industries in the field of telecommunications, microelectronic, lasers and novel material. Because many engineering physics graduates aspire to careers in the University and Industrial research communities, further studies in applied science or engineering are often pursued.
A good Higher National Diploma (HND) in Engineering (preferably First or Second class) from a recognized Polytechnic or institution of Engineering
