Nuclear Engineering Division (NE)

Welcome to the Nuclear Engineering Division community site!

The Nuclear Engineering Division is AIChE's oldest technical division. AIChE members who are active in industrial, research, educational, or government organizations involved with the nuclear fuel cycle should join the NE division. The NE division provides members, as well as the general public, with factual information on nuclear energy. It informs other members of the Institute with the achievements and problems of the nuclear energy industry.

NE also encourages the application of new technologies developed in the nuclear industry, and supports actions by AIChE in the field of nuclear energy.
