Calvin Giles MPhys, 2005
Physicist at Symetrica
I have worked for two years as a Physicist in Symetrica’s small R&D team. Symetrica is a high-technology spin-out Company from the University of Southampton whose main focus is to develop new technologies for use in radiation detection.
There is a great balance between studying and student life at Southampton and a great student atmosphere.
I have been able to apply my core Physics and Mathematics skills from day one and have also learned a great deal since I commenced my research.
The MPhys course provided a great set of transferable skills andI found my degree prepared me very well for a research role and I had no problems getting up to speed in making a significant contribution.
There is a great balance between studying and student life at Southampton and a great student atmosphere - I am still in touch with several of my fellow alumni.
