Nuclear Regulatory Commission
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is an independent agency, established by the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, tasked with licensing and regulating the Nation’s civilian use of byproduct, source, and special nuclear material to ensure adequate protection of public health and safety, to promote the common defense and security, and to protect the environment.
The Energy Policy Act of 2005 authorized the NRC Nuclear Education Grant Program to support courses, studies, training, curricula, and disciplines pertaining to nuclear safety, nuclear security, nuclear environmental protection, and other fields that the Commission determines to be critical to the NRC’s regulatory mission. The NRC Nuclear Education Grant Program’s primary purpose is supporting and developing the educational infrastructure necessary to allow the Nation to safely move its nuclear energy initiatives forward. The NRC currently supports curriculum development in the following technical areas: Nuclear Engineering • Criticality safety courses for nuclear professionals • Thermal-hydraulics model development • Reactor physics • Nuclear power plant safety • Nuclear power plant design and operations (including operating and emergency operating procedures) • Fuel performance Radiochemistry and Radiobiology Health Physics • Health physics modeling • Dosimetry and measurements • Environmental transport, dissolution, and migration • Decontamination and decommissioning • Reprocessing, recycle chemistry, and technology courses Materials and Mechanical Engineering • Welding principles, and nondestructive examination (NDE) technology • Management of aging plants (components and systems) • Material corrosion Reliability and Risk Analysis Electrical Engineering • Power generation and distribution or electrical components • Digital instrumentation and control systems Safeguards and Security • Material control and accountability courses • Vulnerability analysis Human Factors and Human Reliability • Human factors modeling • Applied-experimental psychology, specializing in human performance and human factors Fire Protection Engineering • Fire Modeling for Fuel Cycle Facilities • Fire Modeling for Nuclear Power Plants
