North Carolina State University

About the North Carolina State University

North Carolina State University excels in science, technology, engineering, math, design, the humanities and social sciences, textiles and veterinary medicine.

Its 9,000 faculty and staff are world leaders in their fields, bridging the divides between academic disciplines and training approximately 34,000 high-caliber students to meet tomorrow's challenges. NC State is leading efforts to curb nuclear proliferation, develop a smart electric grid, create self-powered health monitors, help farmers confront climate change and build a new American manufacturing sector.

The Department of Nuclear Engineering at NC State is home to the nation's first university-based nuclear reactor. The department's 17 faculty members conduct research on fission, nuclear security and radiation detection, plasma science and engineering, nuclear materials and nuclear computational science. 

The NC State Nuclear Reactor Program, a partner of the Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF) Program, utilizes the 1 MW PULSTAR research reactor. Facilities at the reactor include a neutron powder diffraction facility, a neutron imaging facility, an intense position beam and an ultra cold neutron source.
