The University has a 2025 vision that it will be among the top 50 public research institutions by 2025. The College of Engineering (COE) embraces that vision and is seeking to dramatically increase its graduate and undergraduate research programs.
The Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Department leads the COE in research, with exciting programs in nanotechnology, thermal sciences, and nuclear engineering. The main focus is on the Nuclear Engineering program within the MNE Department, including its distance education efforts.
In this film they showcase their research reactor and the Semiconductor Materials and Radiological Technologies (SMART) laboratory, computational methods for reactor analysis.
Kansas State University Nuclear Engineering Program has a rich legacy, being the first to be accredited in the US. The research reactor has the longest continuously running core in the US.
The SMART lab leads the nation in university-based research on radiation detectors and nuclear sensor systems. With the Radiation Measurement Applications Lab, it addresses critical problems in homeland security and in industrial and medical radiation applications.
