Student working at the NSC

The Nuclear Science Center is not just a research facility - it's also an educational facility.

How students use the NSC

Students in the Department of Nuclear Engineering at Texas A&M use the NSC's reactor labs in their NUEN 405 and NUEN 606 courses. The students use the reactor to answer complex questions about reactor theory. Students operate the reactor under instruction and conduct self-directed design projects at the NSC.

Students also have to opportunity to obtain  reactor operator licenses or  duty health physicist certification.
