Abstract

In Mexico there are 28 public and private universities in which Physics, Engineering Physics and related degrees are taught. Although the websites of the different universities mention the different employment options that a physicist can have, there is no study about the job opportunities of Physicists and Engineering Physicists in Mexico. In this paper we present the results of an online survey addressed to Physics and Engineering Physics graduates who completed their bachelor’s degree in Mexico and who were active in the labor market, with the aim of knowing the labor field of Mexican physicists. In addition to employment, information about their salaries, sex, their highest degree of studies and their perception of the level of personal fulfillment in the professional field was obtained. The information gathered can be used to form a guide for students and recent graduates to learn about the different employment options available to broaden their vision on job prospects for physicists in Mexico.
