What is the NESD?

Every year, our nation’s brightest students head to Washington, D.C., to discuss the issues facing nuclear energy, policy, education, and research with key policymakers. Traditionally comprised of only nuclear engineering students, the Delegation has broadened over the years to include students from various disciplines, including, but not limited to, non-health physics, national security, economics, and public policy. These individuals are the voice of today’s students and tomorrow’s leaders in the nuclear industry.

Mission Statement

The Delegation, as a representative cross-section, seeks to express the views and policies of the nuclear science and engineering student population. As students, we find ourselves discovering a field that holds promise for a bright future. There is an interest and enthusiasm for the nuclear sciences in America’s youth, and we look for the continued support of programs that will benefit students and society.
