Faculty & Facilities
Faculty numbers in Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have more than doubled since 2011, and the number of NPRE graduate students have grown accordingly.
Nuclear power research covers materials, reactor simulations, systems and safety, and probablistic risk analysis. Plasma and fusion studies include semi conductor advancements, fusion energy, plasma modeling and simulations, and nanostructured biointerfaces for regenerative medicine. Research in radiological technologies examines detection and homeland security, and biomedical imaging.
