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 Research Safety Concerns for Urban Search and Rescue Dogs and Their Handlers in Contaminated Environments - Urban search and rescue (USAR) dogs are a familiar member of most emergency response teams. We often see footage of these dogs working in difficult environments after major disasters to help find and rescue survivors and recover remains. A search and rescue dog must complete many months of rigorous training to be certified to complete […]
