Engineering Physics is a course that might be suitable for you if you are interested in newly developing areas of physics, instrumentation and communications, have an avid interest in technology and a passion for physics. Skills like problem-solving, observation skills, numerical aptitude, practical thinking and reasoning are important for this field. Technical know-how is beneficial and professionals in this field should be able to communicate their ideas to others with clarity, precision and imagination in a way that captures the interest of others. Engineering physics stresses the application of fundamental scientific principles to the design of equipment.
Eligibility for the Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) in Engineering Physics is generally a minimum of 55 percent in the 12th standard with physics, chemistry and mathematics in the curriculum. Some colleges have entrance exams that you must clear for admission to this course. This is a course that is beneficial for careers in applied science and applied physics in industries and also in research labs, universities and for higher studies. It can be a flexible course that might lead to careers in telecommunications, microelectronics, micro-devices, lasers, nanotechnology, opto-electronics or quantum information systems. Graduates of engineering physics can work in teams to develop materials, simulate complex systems, and research innovative technologies. Graduates can find work in private industries, state industries and in federal government industries in areas that involve pure and applied research, design, construction, production and manufacturing. Opportunities in sales and management are possible as well.
