A Constructor University BSc in Physics and Data Science provides a solid and simultaneously flexible foundation for careers in diverse fields, from basic research (which frequently includes scientific data analysis) to engineering and life sciences, to finance and management. The scientific knowledge, the data handling qualification, the problem-solving skills, and the social skills acquired during studies of physics and data science at Constructor University guarantee success in our increasingly technology-driven society, as demonstrated by our many very successful graduates.
The broad training in analytical skills, data handling, technical thinking, and the appreciation of complexity and subtlety allows data-aware physicists to work—often with additional qualifications—as management consultants, patent attorneys, market analysts, or risk managers. Many BSc degree recipients go on to graduate in Physics, Data Science and other fields, as careers in research and development usually require a postgraduate degree.
Constructor University Physics BSc graduates have an excellent placement record in top graduate programs, which will improve further by the added data handling skills in the present program. Very helpful for career development is also the opportunity for international network building with Constructor University students coming from more than one hundred different nations. Good communication skills are essential, since many physicists work as part of a team, have contact with clients with non-physics backgrounds, and need to write research papers and proposals. These skills are particularly well developed in the broad and multidisciplinary undergraduate program at Constructor University.
The Career Services Center (CSC) as well as the Constructor University Alumni Office help students in their career development. The CSC provides students with high-quality training and coaching in CV creation, cover letter formulation, interview preparation, effective presenting, business etiquette and employer research as well as in many other aspects, thus helping students identify and follow up rewarding careers after their time at Constructor University. Furthermore, the Alumni Office helps students establish a long-lasting and worldwide network which comes in handy when exploring job options in academia, industry, and elsewhere.
BSc Physics | 2012
When I started my Master of Science in Physics at ETH [Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule, Zürich/Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich], which is a huge university, I realized that Constructor University has a very broad Physics education. I did not even need to take many of the foundational courses that most other Masters students had to take on top of the required courses for the program because I had already had those courses as part of the Constructor program.
I found the faculty very approachable, and they really care. They wanted you to succeed without lowering their requirements and expectations of you. It is really important not to discourage students at that age, and I feel in a public university, it is the complete opposite where there is a process of weeding out students so the exams are tougher on purpose in the first semester.
Today’s business world requires disciplinary knowledge from graduates as well as the ability to apply this knowledge. Career-related services at Constructor University provide information, counseling and training, networks, and events. Constructor University’s students participate in trainings on project management, business communication, job interview skills, and more. Digital job and internship portfolios help students to prepare for their career.
Studying at Constructor University gives you connections – often for your whole life.
The Alumni Association E.V. was founded in 2004 by the first generation of graduates. Since then, around 4,500 students have obtained their degrees from this University.
