NCR Research Areas

  • Cybersecurity Innovations Laboratory (CIL)

    Leveraging the local ecology, researchers within ICTAS-NCR are building Virginia Tech to be a leader in the field of cybersecurity. This research involves collaborations with the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) and the Virginia Tech Applied Research Corporation (VT-ARC), both of which are collocated with ICTAS-NCR, in the pursuit of large cyber-related programs with federal agencies and their industry partners. Key research areas include the security of mobile and wireless communications, along with infrastructure security challenges associated with cloud computing and enterprise networks.

  • Nuclear Science and Engineering Lab (NSEL)

    Nuclear Science and Engineering Lab (NSEL) enables the VT Nuclear Engineering Program to fill a void in nuclear education and research in the National Capital Region. It is expected that NSEL activities will lead to establishment of new centers, vigorous research activities, engagement in nuclear policy development, and innovations of new tools and devices and computational tools for application in nuclear power, nuclear security and safeguards, and radiation diagnosis and therapy. NSEL will contribute to enhancing nuclear education in the NCR, and training of the next generation nuclear scientists and engineers. NSEL will also facilitate the international activities of the VT Nuclear Engineering Program, particularly, in the VT, India campus.
