About the Nuclear Institute
The Nuclear Institute is the UK membership organisation for Nuclear Professionals, with nearly 2,000 members working in all areas of the nuclear sector. We maintain the standards of professionalism in the nuclear sector through our code of conduct and the Nuclear Delta. Of most importance to us is the education and training of nuclear professionals, as well as the understanding of the nuclear industry from the wider public. As a learned society we also act as the independent voice of the industry.
The institute was created on the 1st January 2009 from the merger of the British Nuclear Energy Society and the Institution of Nuclear Engineers, who between them have been serving the industry from the late 1950's, not very long after the industry first came into being.
