The Nuclear Power Institute (NPI) is a joint center of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and Texas A&M University. NPI operates underneath the Nuclear Engineering & Science Center.
NPI is developing human resources and preparing the workforce for the nuclear industry around the world. NPI meets these vital workforce needs through a broad partnership with: industry; two-year community and technical colleges; four-year universities; high schools; middle schools; educators in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM); state government; federal and international agencies; and elected and civic leaders. Since its creation in 2007, NPI has become recognized as a leader in developing and maintaining the human resource infrastructure necessary for the nuclear industry.
The mission of the Nuclear Power Institute is to develop “the necessary workforce” in the State of Texas to support the continuing and emerging clean industry and nuclear science and technology needs across the State of Texas.
This includes enhancing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education and professional development at all levels.
NPI will establish, expand, and maintain a network of engagement to enhance STEM awareness and consideration for students, education professionals, and industrial employers.
This network enables engagement and enrichment opportunities for students, educators and professionals in K-12 schools, community colleges and universities, and stakeholder industries across Texas.
