A PhD is a research degree. In short, it is expected that by the end of the PhD you will be an expert in your particular area of research.
In Physics, a PhD can open many future career opportunities, particularly at Research Laboratories, at Universities, at companies with a strong technological output and in the service sector such as banks and consulting companies. Depending on the specific theme of research you will master advanced experimental, computational and analytic techniques, providing strong and powerful tools to develop your career.
