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.

How the NRC modernized its digital I&C infrastructure and where it goes from here
The Nuclear Regulatory Commissiona first formally developed infrastructure for the review of digital instrumentation and control (I&C) systems in the 1990s. Although the current fleet of nuclear power plants in the United States was originally designed and constructed with analog systems, the U.S. nuclear industry has for more than 30 years been working to upgrade these older systems with modern digital equipment.

Nuclear non-proliferation and international safeguards are important national security topics that require significant nuclear engineering expertise. Yet, most nuclear engineering programs do not require students to take a non-proliferation course, and some nuclear degree-granting universities don't even offer such a course. Luckily, there are a variety of opportunities for students to develop their expertise in non-proliferation, from internships and short courses, to graduate fellowships and post-degree programs. Students and recent graduates who have participated in these extra-curricular programs will share their experience and recommend ways for students to develop their expertise and prepare for a career in nuclear non-proliferation and international safeguards.
