The JUAS courses are a unique opportunity to immerse yourself into the accelerator field. With hands on experiences, expert lectures and wonderful camaraderie, JUAS is an intensive program that will only leave you wishing for more.
The visits, the workshops and the practical days were particularily useful to touch with hands what we have seen during the lectures. The interaction with the professors and other students is one of the most valuable aspect of this intense experience. I’ve met many future colleagues, and many friendships born here will last a lifetime.
As a capable but by no means top-of-the-class physicist, I came to JUAS expecting to have to work like hell to keep up. I wasn’t wrong, but I’ve never had so much fun. I learned a great deal and gained so much with so many bright people for a few weeks. Highly recommended!
JUAS opened new horizons for me in the world of particle accelerators, with amazing insights into their applications and also to virtually access the most important accelerator facilities in the world.
I am very satisfied with the courses I followed and have already started to see the effect of them on the quality on my PhD work.
With experts and professors from CERN and universities all over Europe presenting their fields, densely but passionately, there is no better way of starting a career in particle accelerators in my opinion.
It was a one-of-a-kind experience, even though online. The people at ESI made us feel very welcome and went above and beyond to make it an exciting 5 weeks. A wide range of topics were covered and I was able to decide what field I wanted to pursue in future.
My experience at JUAS course 1 was really positive. I had the chance to learn from really well-prepared professors who were always available for insights/extra explanations. Despite the remote format, the school gave me the possibility to know other realities in the accelerator world and to meet many interesting people with similar aspirations.
As a student with a background in electronic engineering, it was a great experience to learn all about accelerator physics. The course covers all the fundamentals as well as real-life applications in the field. The highlight for me was the accelerator design workshop.
JUAS allowed me to enter my PhD without any gaps and with a high level of preparation. The lectures, although online, were carried out in an excellent way with teachers who were able to make us passionate about the subjects.
