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.
Nuclear Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

The Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Department is the largest within Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) College of Engineering — offering an ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Nuclear Engineering. The department further offers a Master of Science (M.S.) degree and a first of its kind hybrid doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering.
All core courses are taught by highly skilled and talented individuals dedicated to each and every student. Their breadth of research expertise includes, but is not limited to: plasma physics for space exploration, nano-radioisotope for medical applications, neutron transports, thermal fluid science and molten salt chemistry for advanced reactor and nuclear fuel cycle, and nuclear safeguards for protecting our future safe and clean energy.
Students within the department have access to the latest, world-class tools and technologies via our academic and research laboratories. Research opportunities are readily available to both graduate and undergraduate students.
The VCU-Nuclear Engineering graduate program is now ranked 18th by the U.S. News & World Report for 2020-2021. We encourage you to visit our booth for more information about all our Nuclear Engineering program has to offer.
