Courses Academic Preparation for gravitational wave careers?

  1. Nov 10, 2018 at 4:15 PM #1
    If someone wanted to pursue a career in gravitional wave physics, and work at places like LIGO, studying astrophysical objects such as black holes and neutron stars, etc.
    What are some key courses/skills that person should take/learn as an undergraduate, and graduate student?

    Um, I'd suggest astrophysics, with generous sides of maths, mathematica and electronics...
