Hello All I've got two years left in my Physics undergrad degree at a university in Ontario, Canada. My ultimate career goal is to do research in fusion energy, and I've just started looking into what steps I should take to get there, starting with grad school. Naturally, I have some questions: First of all, aside from plasma physics, what are some other areas that one might study that directly relate to fusion? I ask this because in Canada, the choices for good experimental plasma physics seem to be limited to U. Montreal and U. Saskatchewan. The former is a French-speaking university, so for me that only leaves one choice. Therefore, it would be nice to know what other potential areas might feed into fusion should I want some Canadian alternatives. That said, I think my first choice would be somewhere in the US, simply because of the greater opportunities. I started making a list of schools that offer graduate programs in plasma physics... and it's pretty big! So what are some of the better-known schools that do plasma physics in general and fusion research in particular? I'm a hands-on guy, so my preference would be an experimental focus. Finally, I'd really like to get some research experience before the end of my undergrad. Canada offers some great internship bursaries, but can anyone think of some labs that do plasma/fusion research that accept might accept international students? Thanks in advance!
