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.

The public perception of nuclear science and technology affects its outlook perhaps more than any other field. In this panel discussion, the media's role in affecting public perception as well as methods to change negative connotations surrounding nuclear will be discussed. Join Mr. David Doctor, Mr. Eric Meyer, Ms. Michelle Brechtelsbauer, and Dr. William Kinsella to discover how the next generation of nuclear engineers can shape the public perception of the nuclear industry.
