Career Advisory Board

The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota/Twin Cities strives to ensure that its graduates have knowledge of physics, are familiar with the wide range of careers best suited for their skills, and are ready to embark on these careers. The career advisory board provides input into how to best prepare physics students for their future careers and it serves as a point of contact between the School and industry, national labs, and other academic institutions.
