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.

Investing in the future of energy: Progress toward deploying U.S. advanced reactor projects
When people think of the deployment of advanced nuclear reactors in the United States, they might imagine something far into the future, with countless steps between concept and reality. But those steps are becoming strides, and the finish line is rapidly drawing closer.
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!
