PITTSBURGH (August 21, 2018) ...

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) awarded $400,000 to the University of Pittsburgh to support two graduate fellowships in nuclear engineering over the next four years.

Daniel Cole, associate professor of mechanical engineering and materials science (MEMS) and director of the Swanson School of Engineering's Stephen R. Tritch Program in Nuclear Engineering, will serve as principal investigator for the project.

"The Nuclear Engineering Program dates back to 2006 when industry partners approached the Swanson School leadership for assistance with current and projected workforce development challenges," Dr. Cole said.

"We started undergraduate and graduate certificate programs in Nuclear Engineering and have grown the program since."

In 2017, thermal science researcher Heng Ban joined the Swanson School's MEMS department as R. K. Mellon Professor in Energy.
