Alumni have gone on to critical and exciting careers working in the US DOE National Laboratories or in other government organizations that are maintaining national and international nuclear weapons security.
NSSC Director Dr. Jasmina Vujic has been honored as part of the UC Berkeley College of Engineering’s celebration of 150 years of women in engineering.
The Boot Camp is a unique, week-long course on all aspects of nuclear security policy. The program offers unbeatable learning and networking opportunities including: classes with internationally recognized nuclear security policy experts, talks from experts in a variety of nuclear policy sectors, and discussion with key stakeholders in nuclear policy.
To support our partners in the transition to holding all classes online in response to COVID-19 the Nuclear Science and Security Consortium has compiled relevant recorded lessons to be utilized in class discussions.
This eight week extended research internship provides students broad exposure to LANL, access to mentors from LANL and SNL, and opportunities for lab-directed research.
The Nuclear Science and Security Consortium (NSSC) is a multi-institution initiative established by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to train the next generation of nuclear security experts while engaging in research and development in collaboration with U.S. DOE National Laboratories in support of the nation’s nonproliferation mission. Originally established in 2011, with successful re-competitions in 2016 and 2021, the consortium, led by the University of California, Berkeley, is currently comprised of eleven universities and is in cooperation with five national laboratories.
With over a decade of experience and a network of alumni now active at the labs, the NSSC has demonstrated scientific excellence in a wide range of basic and applied research in nuclear security science and engineering.
Prof. Jasmina Vujic, NSSC Director and Principal Investigator, discusses the need for a nuclear science and engineering workforce and the impact of the Nuclear Science and Security Consortium, featured in the ANS News February 2023 issue
