Description

The Department of Physics at the University of Windsor offers three streams within our B.Sc. Honours Physics degree program: General Physics, Physics and High Technology, and Medical Physics. Of these programs, the latter two are both targeted specifically toward students interested in non-academic careers (NAC). As of the Fall of 2013 these students comprised 57% of the undergraduate physics student population. In this talk I will describe our relatively new medical physics stream (the largest stream in the Department), including our motivation for starting this stream, the specific career education and experiential learning opportunities afforded our students, our expectations for these students after graduation, and the career progress made by our graduates so far.
