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.

The CASL Education Program was established to ensure that CASL results and technology were integrated into undergraduate and graduate curricula, and support the transfer of CASL technology to industry users. Programs developed to support this goal include undergraduate research opportunities, summer internships, development of new courses at constituent Universities and establishment of the CASL Institute. Panel members include faculty members from CASL partner Universities (NCSU, MIT, and UM), industry and former students that participated in activities sponsored by the Education Program. Presentations will summarize the history and evolution of the Education Program and its major contributions. Individual panel members will provide their unique experiences/perspectives associated with the program, followed by questions and discussion.
