Good day everyone, I have some questions I would like to ask you, I think there will be somebody who will be knowledgeable about things I am interested in. So my intentions are as follow: I want to finish MEng degree at my university (which I am yet to take on). And after that I want to undergo specialization in Nuclear Physics/Engineering (Energy), it is not necessarily required to be Phd program (well I would prefer it not to be, because it usually takes quite a time to complete it (I am obsessed with time conservation)). I want to be involved into "real" nuclear studies (by that I mean, whole "behind the scenes" workings in nuclei and understanding how it works). As for my own personal reasons I want university to be "prestigious" (please, don't judge me, there are circumstances for this) like: "Cambridge", "Oxford" (well it is not best for technical sciences, but it serves as example), "MIT", "Caltech" and so on (well it is not must, but I would really prefer it). As for my grades, they are top notch in all subjects and I have additional knowledge in all physics/chemistry related subjects ("getting in" and high marks are not a problem). So far I am considering studying Nuclear Energy in Cambridge university to pursue MPhil title, but I am wavering because I am not sure if these studies will provide as in depth outlook into the subject as I want, though what is good - that MPhil studies takes only 11 months (I know, load may be quite big, but it does not concern me). Later on, you may continue for Phd if you wish. As next option I am considering Nuclear Physics course for Phd title in Edinburgh university. Probably the biggest drawback is 3 years of studies/research (I know many others take way longer, but that's why I am barely considering them). And I have a question for this case: As nuclear physicist with Phd, will I be on par with nuclear engineer (considering knowledge application in technology) ? Plus I don't know if I consider Edinburgh university as "prestigious"... And what's the difference between Nuclear Energy and Nuclear Engineering(or Nuclear Physics (I know main difference between Nuclear Physics and Nuclear Engineering studies though (or I think I do))) studies ? I know this post of mine may seem offending in some ways. But please do not disregard it. Thank you for your time. Waiting for offers/answers.
