The American Nuclear Society (ANS) is a non-for-profit organization consisting of 11,000 members. Its main objective is to promote the advancement of science and engineering relating to the field of nuclear energy and its applications. The purpose of the University of Utah’s ANS Student Chapter is to promote nuclear education and the University of Utah’s unique nuclear engineering program as well as to enhance the academic and professional development of its members.

This is a student-run group and we invite anyone to join. It would be preferrable that you are enrolled and pursuing an approved or accredited scientific or engineering curriculum.

    The following was taken directly from the Official Alpha Nu Sigma Webpage

    “The objective of the Alpha Nu Sigma Society is to recognize high scholarship, integrity, and potential achievement in applied nuclear science and nuclear engineering among outstanding students by means of membership in the Society.
    The Alpha Nu Sigma National Honor Society for Nuclear Science and Engineering was authorized by the ANS Board of Directors in June 1979, after good organizational work by an Ad Hoc Committee of the ANS Education & Training Division that resulted in establishment of this national honor society.”

    Our section of Alpha Nu Sigma was re-instated in 2011. If you have any questions on the requirements for joining this prestigious honor society, please send us an e-mail at
