Absolutely. Do you mean study in graduate school?

How about keeping it simple.

Could you also clarify your long-term interests? Do you want to be a synchotron/accelerator operator? Do you want to build them? Design them? Or run experiments at them as a research scientist?

Can you attach course offerings from your department?

Most likely operating them.The thing is what we are taking is pure engineering stuff way far from nuclear physics even though I took 2 courses about nuclear physics the rest of courses are about Radiation Shielding Thermal hydraulics Nuclear theory Dose incore and safety
