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's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

Future job opportunities highlight Friday Plenary at ANS Student Conference
The second day of the 2021 ANS Virtual Student Conference, on April 9, hosted by North Carolina State University opened with the plenary, “Student Opportunities within the Nuclear Community.” The session featured three panelists, each representing a different sector of the nuclear community.
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.
Applications for the WISE Program are now being accepted.
