Engineering Accelerator Physics and Engineering

  1. Nov 3, 2012 #1
    What roles do engineers play in the field of accelerator physics, specifically electrical engineers. I would imagine something to do with electromagnetism or microwave engineering but I have no idea. Does anyone else know what they do in the field?
