The Department of Nuclear Engineering at North Carolina State University has spent the 2020–2021 academic year celebrating the 70th anniversary of its becoming the first U.S. university to establish a nuclear engineering curriculum. It started in 1950, when Clifford Beck, then of Oak Ridge, Tenn., obtained support from NC State’s dean of engineering, Harold Lampe, to build the nation’s first university nuclear reactor and, in conjunction, establish an educational curriculum dedicated to nuclear engineering.
The department, host to the 2021 ANS Virtual Student Conference, scheduled for April 8–10, now features 23 tenure/tenure-track faculty and three research faculty members. “What a journey for the first nuclear engineering curriculum in the nation,” said Kostadin Ivanov, professor and department head.

As part of the International Nuclear Energy Research Initiative project supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy, a collaborative team including Sandia National Laboratories, the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique in France, and industrial partner General Atomics constructed and operated a closed-loop system for demonstration of hydrogen production by the sulfur-iodine (S-I) process. The Integrated Laboratory-Scale experiment was conducted at General Atomics' San Diego facility. This paper will summarize project goals, results of the program, key challenges identified for the S-I process, and the lessons learned.
