Student Organizations

Nuclear engineering students benefit from opportunities to join active and diverse student organizations.

The NE department hosts a student chapter of the American Nuclear Society (ANS) and the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM).

Engineering Students Services is the hub for several additional student organizations.  These include:

  • National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
  • Engineers Without Borders (EWB)
  • Hispanic Engineering and Science Organization (HESO)
  • American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)
  • Society for Women Engineers (SWE)
  • Women in Science and Engineering (WISE)

Students don't have to be part of an ethnic or minority group to participate, and the organizations accept students from other schools and colleges.  For more information, contact Engineering Student Services at (505) 277-4354.

Additionally, UNM is home to many fraternities, sororities, academic and special interest groups.  Explore the complete listing of organizations at the Student Activities website.

The American Nuclear Society is a not-for-profit, international, scientific and educational organization. It was established by a group of individuals who recognized the need to unify the professional activities within the diverse fields of nuclear science and technology. December 11, 1954, marks the Society's historic beginning at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. ANS has since developed a multifarious membership composed of approximately 11,000 engineers, scientists, administrators, and educators representing 1,600 plus corporations, educational institutions, and government agencies. It is governed by four officers and a board of directors elected by the membership.

Mission: ANS provides its members with opportunities for professional development and serves the nuclear community by creating a forum for sharing information and advancements in technology, and by engaging the public and policy makers through communication outreach.

Purpose: The core purpose of ANS is to promote the awareness and understanding of the application of nuclear science and technology.

The Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM) is the premier nonprofit technical organization devoted to ensuring the safe, secure and peaceful stewardship of nuclear materials for the benefit of mankind.

Nuclear materials management involves the production, use, storage, transport, handling, protection, accounting and other essential aspects involved with the fundamental elements of the civilian nuclear fuel cycle, most notably, uranium and plutonium.
