About

 

The Georgia Tech Student Chapter of the American Nuclear Society supports the ANS mission:

“The American Nuclear Society is a not-for-profit, international, scientific and educational organization. It was established by a group of individuals who recognized the need to unify the professional activities within the diverse fields of nuclear science and technology. December 11, 1954, marks the Society’s historic beginning at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. ANS has since developed a multifarious membership composed of approximately 11,000 engineers, scientists, administrators, and educators representing 1,600 plus corporations, educational institutions, and government agencies. It is governed by four officers and a board of directors elected by the membership.”

Purpose: The core purpose of ANS is to promote the awareness and understanding of the application of nuclear science and technology.
Vision: ANS will be the recognized credible advocate for advancing and promoting nuclear science and technology.

GT ANS has taken part in many activities in this vein, including visiting high school classes, taking group trips to nuclear facilities, having guest speakers on campus, facilitating interaction within the chapter, and other things of this nature. More information about ANS can be found at www.ans.org.
