Hi, so im currently an ug, and ive been offered positions to do particle physics research. The thing that is turning me off is that it's mostly computational work in C++. I don't know how much i'll enjoy working at the computer all day, but the idea of studying what makes up matter is interesting in of itself. So theres a bit of a dillema where it can be boring on one end but exciting on the other. Ive also been told that graduate students do alot of computational work in particle physics too. (i havent been able to find hardware related work, so computation is my only option.) So im wondering if anyones done this sort of computation research? Did you find it really interesting and intellectuality stimulating? Was it worthwhile? What was it that you liked most about it?
