Why Study Physics?

Physics is the most fundamental science and the backbone of most exact sciences. It encompasses phenomena ranging from the scale of galaxies down to that of the smallest particles. It unravels the basic laws governing our reality but at the same time explores complex structures as those emerging in biology and condensed matter. 
Physics has led to great discoveries such as relativity, transistors, LEDs, and lasers. The diverse set of tools physicists learn enable them to tackle a large scope of problems in topics including health, finance, renewable energy, and artificial intelligence. Thus beyond being the first step in a potential academic career, the set of skills physicist acquires are well sought after in the industry.
