During Fall semesters, the FRC will take seniors from local high schools for a 2 month internship. It is highly encouraged for students to have taken at least up to multi-variable calculus and the physics of mechanics. Internships usually begin in September and end just before winter break.
Undergraduates have the option to partake in research in the FRC for course credit under special topics courses. Usually undergraduates begin research in the spring semester after taking NRE 4610, which is an introduction to Fusion Technology class for senior undergraduates. If you are enthusiastic about fusion and would like to be involved, please contact the lab to see if it is a good fit for you.
There are opportunities for MS and PhD graduate research in the areas described under Research. Most projects collaborate with the General Atomics team and utilize data from the DIII-D tokamak in San Diego, California.
