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 students are students who were advised by NSSPI faculty members. NSSPI has supported students in many other research groups and departments, as is partly reflected in the list of theses and dissertations.
- NSSPI develops remote detection laboratory for distance education - Performing radiation detection experiments is an essential part of the curriculum for nuclear engineering students. Laboratory sessions help students gain a better understanding of the physical processes involved in radiation detection. However, not all academic institutions have the means to provide the equipment or radiation sources necessary for such labs, and students taking distance education […]
- NSSPI Students Win Awards for Presentations at Annual HPS Texas Chapter Meeting - The State of Texas Chapter of the Health Physics Society (STC-HPS) held their annual student presentations and executive council meeting on the campus of Texas A&M University on April 7, 2018. The event featured presentations by students from throughout Texas, including NSSPI graduate students Katie Cook and J.T. Falkner and undergraduate student Jonathan Chen. Cook […]
- NSSPI researchers develop new methodologies to discriminate weapons-grade plutonium from various nuclear reactor types - Nuclear forensics involves using analytical techniques to determine the origin and history of nuclear materials, in particular those that have been intercepted from smuggling operations or recovered following a nuclear explosion. According to Jeremy Osborn, a nuclear engineering Ph.D. student working with the TEES Center for Nuclear Security Science and Policy Initiatives (NSSPI), “The growing […]
