Nuclear Related Degrees @ CSM


The Nuclear Science and Engineering Center (NuSEC) tries to support faculty engaged in research related to nuclear science and engineering at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM)  by combining resources and creating infrastructure. NuSEC also manages the research relationship, the space and the infrastructure occupied by CSM researchers at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) TRIGA Reactor on the Denver Federal Center in Lakewood, CO. At this point participation in the center includes faculty from  Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Chemistry, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, and Physics. Through its research the center supports undergraduate and graduate students in the programs of the mentioned departments as well as the interdisciplinary graduate program in nuclear engineering.
