Sixty years ago, the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T), then known as the University of Missouri at Rolla, was one of the first U.S. institutions to offer a nuclear engineering degree. Now, decades after it was offered as an option within metallurgical engineering, Missouri S&T’s nuclear program has attained new status as the Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Science Department, the university announced on October 20.

This panel session will recognize, and acknowledge, the Golden Anniversary of the NonProliferation Treaty (NPT) which entered into force 50 years ago in early 1970. A historical review will be given by distinguished individuals having familiarity with the treaty. Discussion will then turn to present day and include discussion regarding the future. Among the ANS professional divisions, the NNPD is clearly the logical sponsor for this important nuclear-based treaty which has added greatly to the safety and security of our nation and the world.
