The Nuclear Science and Engineering Center (NuSEC) supports faculty engaged in nuclear science and engineering research at the Colorado School of Mines by combining resources and developing/managing infrastructure. NuSEC also manages the research and educational relationship with the U.S. Geological Survey TRIGA Reactor (GSTR) on the Denver Federal Center in Lakewood, CO and maintains the Mines research space and infrastructure adjacent to the GSTR. NuSEC includes faculty from Chemistry, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical 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 in the interdisciplinary graduate programs in nuclear engineering and material science.
