NSSPI students have unique opportunities for research, education and professional development. NSSPI students participate in foreign field experiences, present their research results in national and international forums, and have premier internship opportunities at national laboratories.
NSSPI faculty and students established at Texas A&M the first student chapter of the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM). Students working on NSSPI-sponsored projects also are members of both the Student INMM chapter and the International INMM chapter. As members of the organization, our students have opportunities to present research projects, publish articles and immerse themselves in the professional nuclear nonproliferation culture supported by laboratories and governments around the world. See a directory of our NSSPI graduates.

- NSSPI Student Performs Experiments in Support of Stockpile Stewardship Project - The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) launched the Stockpile Stewardship and Management program to address the need to ensure a safe, secure, and reliable nuclear stockpile. Since the United States voluntarily ceased nuclear explosive testing, the program’s assessment of the stockpile is now conducted through modeling and simulation. The NNSA’s Predictive Science Academic Alliance Program […]
