"N" Stamp Work
« on: Sep 10, 2008, 03:33 »
My company is getting its "N" stamp soon and I have some questions.

We are a tank/piping manufacturing company and intend to begin working in the nuclear engineering sector. I am a former fast attack ELT and will be starting/finishing a degree program soon.

I have been tasked to find out the following :

1. Which is better for the company in NUC-Engineering work - BSAST Nuclear from Thomas Edison State or BS Nuclear Tech from Excelsior?
2. To perform NUC related repair work, what does the NRC require in the way of the design engineers? This is along the lines of how PE's are required for ASME/API pressure vessel work and etc... does a PE have to have a special qual in nuclear engineering? I understand some states will not allow a Mechanical PE to sign off on an Architectural job. How does the NRC/State regulate that? In the non-nuc engineering world, a non-pe designer/engineer designs something and a PE signs off on it - is this the same in the nuc field?


Thanks.

Thanks.

A lot of this information will fall under the perveyance of ASME section III.  I actually work for an AIA company that does Authorized Nuclear Inspector work, which is what you will need.  You also have to go through a full Audit in order to get your N Stamp.  If you want some more information just PM me.
