University of New Mexico Student Section of the American Nuclear Society
The Student Section is active in supporting nuclear technologies and scientific reasoning for solutions to questions of safety and performance. The Student Section maintains a large following by promoting nuclear technologies as a viable career as well as providing students with a resource for information and opportunities related to the industry. In addition to special events and projects, the Student Section strives to make outreach an integral part of their operating philosophy. Attendance and presentation of technical papers at ANS national meetings and the ANS student conference is facilitated through the Student Section.
ANS provides its members with opportunities for professional development and serves the nuclear community by creating a forum for sharing information and advancements in technology, and by engaging the public and policy makers through communication outreach. The core purpose of ANS is to promote the awareness and understanding of the application of nuclear science and technology.
The American Nuclear Society is celebrating 60 years as the premier society for nuclear professionals. Our individual membership ranks include more than 11,000 engineers, scientists, educators, students, and others with nuclear related interests. Our members hail from more than 1,600 corporations, educational institutions, and government agencies from over 40 different countries. More than 80 industry-leading companies support the ANS as Organization Members.
ANS, a not-for-profit society, provides extensive opportunities for every professional group in the nuclear field to interact effectively via 22 divisions and technical groups, 59 U.S. and 10 non-U.S. local sections, 3 plant branches, and 43 U.S. and 3 non-U.S. student sections
The Society serves as an advocate for individuals and organizations having a stake in nuclear science and technology. Our Washington, D.C. office acts as a technical resource to senior policy and decision makers. ANS produces position papers on nuclear science and technology issues of our times, publishing these in print and on our website.
