ANS Student Webinar Series

This exciting new initiative was developed by ANS following the postponement of the 2020 ANS Student Conference due to COVID-19. The series includes:

Nuclear Economics: Future of Nuclear

Friday, April 3 | Noon – 1:00 pm EDT

Webinar is free and open to all. Register to participate.

Nuclear energy supplies nearly 20 percent of all of our domestic electricity generation, and 55 percent of carbon-free generation. Nuclear power plants supply the baseload, always-available emissions-free electricity, while providing significant benefits to regional economies. This panel discussion will focus on the economics of nuclear power. The discussion will revolve around the economic drivers for current nuclear power plants and what will be needed for bringing new nuclear plants online.

Student Design Competition

Friday, April 10 | Noon – 1:30 pm EDT

Webinar is free and open to all. Register to participate.

Senior design projects are the pinnacle of the undergrad experience. As the third and final installment of the ANS Student Webinar Series, hear from 10 senior design teams that made it to the final round. This webinar is a presentation opportunity for students unable to present at the recently postponed 2020 ANS Student Conference (rescheduled for April 8-10, 2021). With cash prizes at stake, students will give a five-minute pitch of their research.

Many of these projects are industry and lab collaborations.

We in the Department of Nuclear Engineering and American Nuclear Society at North Carolina State University are eagerly looking forward to hosting students, professionals, and the future leaders in nuclear science and technology at the 2020 ANS Student Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The theme for the conference is Enlighten, Embrace, Empower.

We are organizing a conference program to ENLIGHTEN attendees about nuclear science and technology, EMBRACE nuclear science and technology and EMPOWER attendees with knowledge and enthusiasm for the impact of nuclear technology.
