Going into Accelerator physics with an MS

  1. Apr 20, 2013 #1
    I've read a few times how accelerator physics needs people (really just ZapperZ's postings) and how they're "begging" for people.

    Well, I would like to get back into science from software, and was wondering what the community take is on someone with a MS physics attempting to get into that field. What skill set would they be looking for? Is it not advisable, or perhaps advisable if I took class X, Y, and Z?

    I really wouldn't want to spend 4-6 years in a PhD program somewhere to get qualified.
