A physics degree helps you in the real world in very unexpected ways, whether you're starting your company, building a product, understanding market economies or new technologies (like cryptocurrencies). I will go through how my degree helped me do exactly those 4 things and why I had a much easier time dealing with things completely out of left field where it wasn't my depth of knowledge that mattered but the experience of just reducing problems to their most fundamental aspects.
This talk is geared toward an upper year audience; as always, everyone is welcome to attend.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
