Excelsior University American Nuclear Society-Student Section

American Nuclear Society Excelsior University Logo

The objective of the American Nuclear Society (ANS) Student Section is to promote the advancement of science and engineering relating to nuclear and allied sciences and arts through affiliation with an international organization of nuclear scientists and engineers. Excelsior is the only distance learning institution to host an American Nuclear Society Student Section.

A focus of the ANS Student Section is to increase public awareness of the benefits of nuclear technology and its place in our future. Our Student Section also promotes attendance at national conferences to bring together students from around the country to foster interaction and present information on the latest technology in the field.

We hold virtual meetings quarterly. Log in from home and participate in expert-led chats on topics related to nuclear education, job opportunities, and industry issues. Please see the following for our meeting dates. You must be a member of our Student Section to take part. View ANS Student Section Officers.

Excelsior also hosts a chapter of the Alpha Nu Sigma Honor Society, an affiliate honor society of the American Nuclear Society. Membership in Alpha Nu Sigma recognizes the high scholarship, integrity, and potential achievement in applied nuclear science and nuclear engineering of those outstanding students who are inducted into the Society. Members of the honor society are selected from juniors and seniors in the top 25 and 33 percent, respectively, of their class.

Every year, students in the Excelsior University BS-Nuclear Engineering Technology and BPT-Nuclear Technology degree programs are inducted into Excelsior’s chapter of the Alpha Nu Sigma honor society. We are proud of these students, whose academic excellence inspires us all to achieve our educational goals.
