NRC Licensee Community

The TRIGA reactor at the Nuclear Science Center, previously the Nuclear Radiation Center, at Washington State University has been utilized for research and educational projects since its establishment in 1957. While the reactor has grown both in maximum licensed power level and in scope over the years, our core mission to provide quality nuclear products, services and education to the global community has remained constant. The unique and dedicated staff members of both past and present have been critical in the facilities success and drive over the years. In order to continue to serve the core mission of developing the next generation of the nuclear science workforce, we at the Center want to stay connected to the ever growing NSC team and staff and develop a network of reactor operators, researchers, and staff members.
