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.
Robotics & Remote Systems
The Mission of the Robotics and Remote Systems Division is to promote the development and application of immersive simulation, robotics, and remote systems for hazardous environments for the purpose of reducing hazardous exposure to individuals, reducing environmental hazards and reducing the cost of performing work.

The legacy of the Shippingport Atomic Power Station
Serving as the world’s first scalable nuclear power plant, Shippingport Atomic Power Station led the way for today’s nuclear generation fleet. Shippingport was centrally located roughly 25 miles from Pittsburgh, Pa., to provide electrical generation for many end-users. Shippingport also served as an experimental reactor that allowed engineers and designers the ability to test different core designs, and as such, the site housed additional testing equipment otherwise not commonly seen. The primary goal of Shippingport was always to generate electricity; however, its ability to function as an experimental reactor served utilities in further development of scalable nuclear generation.

The department of Nuclear Engineering at North Carolina State University has a unique history. It is home to the first university-based nuclear reactor and associated Nuclear Reactor Program dedicated to teaching, research, and extension. It is also the lead university in two unique consortia: The Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL), funded by the Department of Energy, uses advanced computer simulations to create safer, more cost-effective nuclear power plants. The Consortium for Nonproliferation Enabling Capabilities (CNEC) is funded by the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA’s) Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation (DNN R&D) Proliferation Detection Program (PDP). The mission of the PDP is to develop technologies to detect foreign nuclear weapons development activities; to support nuclear arms control treaties verification and monitoring for compliance; and to support national nuclear security more broadly. The Consortium for Nuclear Power (CNP) has been established at the North Carolina State University (NCSU) in March 2017. The mission of CNP is to promote research and development, innovation, education, and training as well as the provision of technical support/expert advice/consultancy services that benefit the nuclear industry and its regulation Come join this session to learn more about NCSU's department of Nuclear Engineering, hear research opportunities, and why you join the WolfPack!
