ABILENE, Texas — Two ACU engineering students were awarded prestigious scholarships from the U.S. Department of Energy.
Keaton Brewster, a senior physics/math major, and Reuben Howe, a junior engineering major, Texas, are both doing research with ACU’s NEXT Lab.
The NEXT Lab is dedicated to finding real-world solutions to some of the world’s most critical needs using advanced nuclear reactor designs.
The University said Brewster’s research focused on measurement devices and Howe’s illustrated "a molten salt pump design."
The DOE annually presents more than $5 million in awards through the Office of Nuclear Energy’s Integrated University Program to students pursuing nuclear engineering degrees or other science programs relevant to nuclear energy.
