ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
The division provides a forum for focused technical dialogue on thermal hydraulic technology in the nuclear industry. Specifically, this will include heat transfer and fluid mechanics involved in the utilization of nuclear energy. It is intended to attract the highest quality of theoretical and experimental work to ANS, including research on basic phenomena and application to nuclear system design.

Virginia governor touts nuclear in launch of new state energy plan
Speaking earlier this week at the launch ceremony for Virginia’s 2022 Energy Plan, Gov. Glenn Youngkin called for an all-of-the-above approach, stressing the need for “an achievable and dynamic energy plan that provides for abundant, reliable, affordable, and clean energy.” He also left no doubt as to where nuclear power fits into that plan.
“We have to be all in [for] nuclear energy in Virginia,” Youngkin declared, addressing an audience of lawmakers, workers donning hard hats, and business executives at a power transformer manufacturing facility in Lynchburg. “When it comes to reliability, affordability, when it comes to clean power, when it comes to the abundant nature of growing power demand, absolutely nothing beats nuclear energy. It is the baseload of all baseloads. And Virginia is uniquely positioned to lead.”
ANS is a full participant in the Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) Program, with support for two students. ANS-sponsored students must be student members of the Society.
WISE seeks applications from exceptional engineering students who display evidence of leadership skills and have a keen interest in public policy.
The WISE Program is co-sponsored by several professional engineering societies. The Program is open to students in engineering or technology and policy programs who are in their junior or senior year of undergraduate studies or in graduate school. Approximately 12 outstanding students are selected in a nationwide competition to spend 9 weeks during the summer in Washington, D.C., led by a faculty-member-in-residence (FMR).
ANS student members should complete the ANS application form, write two (2) brief essays in response to questions provided, arrange for two (2) faculty references, and forward an official transcript.
During their internship, they attend a series of seminars to learn how government officials make decisions on complex technological issues and how engineers can contribute to legislative and regulatory public policy decisions. Each intern also completes an independent research project and paper dealing with a technology policy issue. Interns are housed at George Washington University at the expense of the WISE Program, and receive a stipend for the summer.
Office space for the ANS interns is provided by the Nuclear Energy Institute. The WISE Internship is not a paid internship. Students receive a stipend of $2,100 to assist with living and travel expenses. WISE-sponsored, dormitory housing is covered.
