I am a mechanical engineering student still working on my bachelors. I have taken a great interest in the development of the fusion reactor in France (ITER). I have decided to gear my education in such a way that I will eventually be qualified to work at ITER and in the nuclear fusion field. I still want to receive my mechanical engineering degree before I move on to nuclear engineering specifically. Many of you already have your degrees and many of you are probably already working in your field. If you could give me any direction as to the courses to take and the people to talk to in order to become the "perfect fusion engineer" I would really appreciate it. If you could let me know where I could look to find work in the fusion field as a graduate intern that would also help me out a lot. I have been searching the inter-net and trying to get in touch with people already in the field, but it seems once you get this specific you really limit your options. I appreciate any comment you may have.
