Nuclear Engineering Department Advisory Council

The Nuclear Engineering Advisory Council (NEDAC) provides observations, advice, feedback and support to the Department Head and faculty of NC State’s Department of Nuclear Engineering. There are 30 members, each with terms of 5 years and these appointments are staggered. Membership terms are subject to renewal by the Department Head upon consultation with faculty and consent of the target NEDAC member. The Council elects a Chair with concurrence by the Department Head.

The Council meets at least once a year, and member substitutions are not permitted. Subcommittees of NEDAC will be formed as needed and are charged with addressing overarching issues of nuclear engineering education and research – for example, space and facilities, national recognition, curriculum review, diversity efforts, lab/industry/university interaction, and fundraising.

The Department’s Strategic Plan is reviewed by the Council at least every other year and provides recommendations to the Department Head. Council members are encouraged to champion and facilitate senior design projects, internships for (under)graduate students, employment of departmental graduates, and support outreach and research activities.
