I would suggest the studies of Applied Physics for the graduates of secondary school, who like sciences, but are not sure which particular speciality they want to study. Graduates of Applied Physics studies can easily direct their knowledge towards specializations of various areas, even though it might take longer than graduating from the desired speciality.

UAB "Leggato", Manager

I started working at the company "Leggato" as a storekeeper and then climbed my career ladder, only because I acquired a wide range of technical knowledge during the studies of applied physics: starting with acoustics, geometrical optics, strength of materials or computer graphics. The basis of acquired knowledge is enough for successful work, but deeper knowledge of physical phenomena and their application, as well as mathematical calculation or modelling, is necessary for career development. Studies of physics have taught me to find analytical solutions of technical problems. I am glad that studies not only expanded my knowledge horizons, but also created a strong scientific ground. At work, I constantly apply the knowledge, acquired during Bachelor and Master degree studies of applied physics. I could not identify the most significant modules, because all of them were significant and useful.
