This list comprises many of the current facilities that are utilized by the Nuclear Engineering department and are available to students and faculty. This list is not meant to be comprehensive, but is meant to give people an idea of the resources that are available to them.
Nuclear Engineering Laboratory (Nuclear Reactor)
The Idaho State University AGN-201 is a self-contained, graphite-moderated research and training reactor that is licensed to operate at a maximum thermal power of 5 watts. It consists of two basic units, the reactor unit and the control console. The reactor unit is composed of a central sealed cylindrical core can containing the nuclear fuel material enclosed in a 20-cm-thick graphite reflector, which is surrounded by a 10-cm-thick lead shield, followed by a 55-cm-thick water shield for shielding against fast neutrons.

Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (INSE)
The Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering is located in Idaho Falls on Idaho State University's University Place campus. The Institute is a collaborative effort among Idaho State University, University of Idaho, and Boise State University, with a mission to conduct nuclear science and engineering research, educate the next generation of professionals in nuclear science and engineering, and provide educational programs for the work force of the INL and other national laboratories that will be an integral part of the regeneration of the nuclear industry.
