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.

Practicing engineers should demand more from our education system, the engineering profession, and ourselves. Licensure is the mark of a professional. It is a standard recognized by employers and their clients, by governments and by the public as an assurance of dedication, skill, and quality. Why should we settle for anything less? This webinar provides an overview of the licensing process. Panelists from across the industry discussed the importance of professional licensure and the role nuclear professionals play to protect the health and safety of the public.
