Bachelor's Degree in Applied Physics

Become the professional that all companies and institutions need

Applied physics is at the heart of society. It forms the basis of many of the products we use in everyday life. If you are passionate about understanding the reasons for natural phenomena and the technologies that surround us, in addition to being able to apply reasoning and physical theory to real projects and practices, this is your Bachelor's degree, and Nebrija University is your destination.

Master quantum computing, artificial intelligence, scientific simulations in aeronautics, nanotechnology, control engineering, econophysics and the development of new medicines. This program includes simulation projects for systems such as aeronautics, the automotive industry, medicine and autonomous machines, thanks to the support of top-level international companies and institutions, which develops a multidisciplinary profile in students, adapted to new tools and market technologies.

The expertise of Spanish graduates in physical disciplines has always been of a very high level and has ensured them an easy insertion into the working world, always tailored to their skills and knowledge. In recent years, more and more physicists have made their contribution, both in the world of basic physics research and in various other scientific fields, in whose development they take part through their methodological contribution: science and environment, industry, computer science, technology, economics, diagnostic research techniques and medical therapy, historical research and conservation techniques in the field of cultural heritage.

This boom in employability is due to the explosion of data science and automation in services and industry that requires profiles with deep scientific-technological knowledge, as well as skills, such as critical analysis, complex problem solving, reasoning, self-learning and use of technology, which are developed by the students of this degree. These skills are among those determined to be of incremental importance and within the “top 15” skills for 2025 by the World Economic Forum in its Future of Jobs Survey 2020.

With just 9.2%, workers trained in natural, chemical, physical and mathematical sciences are among those with the lowest unemployment rate according to 2020 data extracted from the INE's Labor Force Survey (EPA) on the influence of the sector and level of training in the labor market.

In other words, not only does the Physics graduate not have to worry about unemployment, but they find employment in the most varied fields and in all of them their qualities are valuable and appreciated.

Career Ooportunties

Graduates in Physics are professionals who are very well prepared and sought after in the working world, to the point that these graduates show an unemployment rate that is one of the lowest of all Spanish degrees. The education received produces versatile professionals, accustomed to the analysis and modeling of complex situations, which gives them a good ability to solve problems of various kinds. Some of the competences of physics graduates that are valued by employers, and also by graduates once they are in the labor market, come not only from the breadth of their knowledge in Physics, but from more cross-cutting aspects, such as: the ability to analyze and synthesize, the possibility of a quantitative approach, of problem solving or the ability for quick self-learning in an even more rapidly evolving technological environment.

Graduates in Applied Physics find employment in industry, laboratories, research centers, and educational institutions:

  • Energy production: nuclear power plants, wind energy or fusion reactors.
  • Meteorology and the environment: weather forecasting, natural disaster prediction or meteorological satellites.
  • Design and development of new materials: nanotechnologies, superconductors or semiconductors.
  • Optics: fiber optics, artificial vision, lasers or image processing.
  • Biophysics: radiation protection, magnetic resonance, effects of electric and magnetic fields in living organisms or drug design.
  • Informatics and computers: robotics, processor design, programming of high security systems or communications networks.

Nebrija University and its Higher Polytechnic School have more than 3,500 collaboration agreements with the best companies and institutions in each sector for training internships. Below is a selection of companies with a current agreement that could incorporate students of the Bachelor's degree in Applied Physics, among others:

Employability recognized in the Rankings

Employability recognized in the Rankings

The commitment of Nebrija University to the academic requirement, training in leading companies and institutions, innovation in multidisciplinary programs and international projection, places the University in the top positions of the most important rankings.

The International Ranking QS Stars awards Nebrija University the maximum score in the quality and satisfaction of students in teaching, employability of the graduates and the internationalization of the institution.

The national rankings also recognize Nebrija University as the first Spanish university in teaching and second in employability, highlighting its performance in research, knowledge transfer and internationalization.

Development of Professional Competences

The Bologna Declaration formalized the principles on which the European Higher Education Area should be based: quality, mobility, diversity, competitiveness and employment growth.

From this, Nebrija stands as an academic model of reference, educating students with excellent individual behavior, interaction with their environment and motivated by and for constant and continuous training. The Nebrija Institute of Professional Skills works every day to achieve the differentiation of our students through the development of attitudes and skills.

The main objective is for students to achieve the best of themselves through the development and empowerment of their personal skills and resources through personal self-knowledge.

In addition, some of the professional skills that are worked on within the three seminars are those related to interpersonal skills and active communication skills and negotiation, indispensable for our students to know how to transmit ideas, to argue them, to provide information and opinions in an adequate, clear and convincing way.

Within what will be their work performance, other aspects such as teamwork, conflict resolution and project management ability will be worked on.

In the third block, skills worked on are those aimed at increasing the student's employability. They will work with tools and techniques for job searching, and perform tasks that achieve in the student a greater use of their personal skills.

For all this we have currently active experts in selection of people, professionals dedicated to personal and professional training and professionals dedicated to the world of communication and the arts.

In this way, and in a complementary way to his/her specific training, we help the student create a differentiating pattern in the social and business environment in which he/she will be immersed when he/she finishes his/her studies.
