I was ahead of the curve - I did it in 1985. Never used any of the physics, either...

... until 20 years into my career, when I got hired by that medical instruments place that was doing 3D reconstructions of patient anatomy from a series of 2D X-rays. Then it was 3D coordinate transforms, Fourier transforms, some other calculus, plus radiation physics.

A lot of stuff you learn isn't relevant to your career - until it is.
