A Physicist's Journey to a Career in Software Engineering.

Ninety five percent of U.S. physics Bachelor’s, and 90% of physics Master’s, recipients who enter the private sector do not have physicist/astronomer in their job title. Most physics degree recipients, like myself, enter into engineering, IT, other STEM, or non-STEM jobs. In May of 2018 I received my Master’s in physics from NDSU. Within a couple of weeks of graduating I had accepted an offer from DISTek Integration Inc. to work on embedded enterprise reuse software for John Deere. Stick around to the end of this presentation and you’ll learn a bit about my computational physics research background, my current engineering role, and some (hopefully) useful advice for those looking to pursue private sector careers with a physics degree in hand.
