UK govt funds Kansas University for nuclear engineering

K-State receives two federal nuclear energy grants, Mercury, Kansas, 28 July 17,  Two new grants awarded to K-State may help the university attract the best students and faculty in nuclear engineering.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a federal nuclear energy commission, awarded K-State’s mechanical and nuclear engineering department two grants totaling about $843,000. The commission awarded a $450,000 grant to help develop young faculty members’ careers and a $393,820 grant to continue the department’s nuclear research fellowship program for graduate students…….

The fellowship grant will cover tuition and fees for students pursuing graduate studies in nuclear engineering…..

A previous fellowship grant from the NRC helped the university recruit three doctoral students in nuclear engineering who plan to graduate in 2018, according to the university. The continuation of the program will assist the university in increasing the number of doctoral graduates in nuclear engineering, which is a direct measure of the success of the department, Bindra said.

“These grants will really help take our department to the next level,” Bindra said. “I am excited to see K-State’s nuclear engineering graduate program become one of the best in the nation.”
