Current Outreach Efforts
The Nuclear Engineering & Science Center is committed to quality education and outreach in nuclear power, nuclear medicine, and nuclear technology. This takes form in various ways, including:
The Nuclear Power Institute (NPI) is a joint center of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and Texas A&M University. NPI operates underneath the NESC.
NPI is developing human resources and preparing the workforce for the nuclear industry around the world. NPI meets these vital workforce needs through a broad partnership with industry, two-year community and technical colleges, four-year universities, high schools, middle schools, educators in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), state government, federal and international agencies, and elected and civic leaders. Since its creation in 2007, NPI has become recognized as a leader in developing and maintaining the human resource infrastructure necessary for the nuclear industry.
Tours are available to all people with all levels of background in nuclear power and nuclear technology.
