Member Requirements

You may become a Member of the Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society by meeting any one of the following requirements:

  • You are already a member of IEEE.
  • Or you graduated from a four-year engineering or related course of study in an accredited school, and you are recommended by an IEEE member.
  • Or you provide evidence of professional achievement comparable to that required for IEEE membership (e.g. formal education or professional position), and you are recommended by an IEEE member.

You may become an NPSS Affiliate Member if your professional interests are in the fields covered by NPSS, but you do not desire the additional benefits derived from belonging to the parent IEEE Organization. You will be entitled to all the benefits of NPSS but not of IEEE. You may join as an NPSS Affiliate if:

  • You have established membership in a professional society that is recognized by NPSS for affiliation purposes. There are many such societies in engineering, medicine, and the physical/life sciences.
  • Or you have professional achievements in nuclear or plasma science or engineering, and you are recommended by an IEEE member.

You may join as a Student Member if you are registered for at least 50% of a full-time academic program in a field related to nuclear or plasma sciences or engineering.
