The Fuel Cycle and Materials Laboratory (FCML) was established at Texas A&M University (TAMU) in the Fall of 2006. The mission of the FCML is to study current issues in the nuclear fuel cycle, including materials and chemical processing, advanced fuels and materials, and waste immobilization. The FCML facilities are located in the TAMU Zachry Engineering Center rooms 340A and B21 are equipped and certified to enable the handling radioactive and reactive materials and performing high temperature materials processing research. In addition, the establishment of a solid safety culture was paramount for lab operations; this has included the review of all general laboratory operations and specific experiments using the university's Project Safety Analysis (PSA) system. FCML research may be divided into three primary areas: 1) Material Processing Development, 2) Nuclear Fuel Research, and 3) Nuclear Waste Research.

The FCML is fully committed to the teaching, research and engagement missions of Texas A&M University, the Dwight Look College of Engineering, and the Department of Nuclear Engineering
