Abstract:
Accelerators are essential to discoveries in fundamental physics, biology, and chemistry. Particle beam-based instruments in medicine, industry and national security form a multi-billion dollar per year industry. Yet only a handful of universities in the US offer any formal training in accelerator science. The United States Particle Accelerator School (USPAS) has developed a highly successful educational paradigm that, over the past twenty-years, has granted more university credit in accelerator / beam science and technology than any university in the world. Sessions are held twice annually, hosted by major US research universities that approve course credit, certify the USPAS faculty, and grant course credit. Educating the next generation of scientists and engineers to build and pilot the engines of discovery for accelerator-based science, medicine, and industrial production must remain a strong three-way partnership among universities, national accelerator laboratories and the USPAS. Each partner has an essential role that must be continually nurtured. The USPAS is proud of its role in the U.S. educational enterprise.
