ACerS Nuclear & Environmental Technology Division

Mission Statement

 

Our Mission: The Nuclear & Environmental Technology Division of ACerS explores applications of ceramics in nuclear energy production and medicine. Current uses of ceramics in this field include fuel and absorber materials for fission reactors as isotopic heat sources, and matrices for safe immobilization of nuclear and hazardous waste materials.

NETD Outstanding Student Researcher Award

 

 The Outstanding Student Researcher (OSR) Award recognizes exemplary student research related to the mission of the Nuclear and Environmental Technology Division (NETD) of The American Ceramic Society (ACerS). 

 

The award is open to U.S. and international graduate and undergraduate students actively engaged in research related to the NETD. Specifically, applicants must have submitted an abstract to the annual conference in the year for which the applicant is applying. It is strongly encouraged that undergraduate submissions present extracurricular projects only, i.e., research conducted outside the normal scope of one’s coursework.

NETD Student Stipend

The Nuclear & Environmental Technology Division of The American Ceramic Society is sponsoring two stipends in the amount of $500 each to help fund students in attending MS&T combined with the ACerS Annual Meeting. These stipends are targeted at deserving students with current or future interests in the nuclear and/or environmental fields of ceramic and materials engineering. Student participation in NETD sponsored symposia through an oral or poster presentation is encouraged but not required. The nomination form should be completed by any student and recognized by a faculty member familiar with the student’s academic performance. Complete the nomination form online or download the form.
