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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

OPG to collaborate further with Polish firm on SMR deployment in Europe
Ontario Power Generation—owner and operator of Canada’s Darlington and Pickering nuclear plants—and Poland’s ORLEN Synthos Green Energy (OSGE) have signed a letter of intent (LOI) that builds on the companies’ existing cooperation on the deployment of small modular reactors in Europe, OPG announced last week.
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.
