Who We Are
Analysis and Measurement Services Corporation (AMS) is a nuclear engineering consulting firm, providing the worldwide nuclear power industry with equipment, training, and services to verify the performance of process instrumentation and control systems.
Founded in 1977 in Knoxville, Tennessee, AMS was created as a spin-off company based on research performed at the Oak Ridge National Lab and the University of Tennessee. Our company is staffed by a group of approximately 100 engineers and scientists with B.S. to Ph.D. degrees in nuclear, electrical, mechanical, chemical, computer, and materials engineering.

Even as we continue to grow, AMS proudly sustains a “we are family” culture. Many AMS employees have worked for our organization for over 20 years. Our company inspires this loyalty through its genuine concern for the well-being of employees and their families.

At AMS, we believe that a company should continually be involved with the local community. To that end, AMS proudly supports many community initiatives such as the United Way, Children’s Hospital, and various fundraising efforts of local charities. We also feel a commitment to help the next generation of engineers. As such, AMS has contributed to area schools and universities to help students realize their dreams of working in engineering fields. AMS co-founded ‘Systers: Women in EECS at UTK’ which mentors young women entering EECS and reaches out to girls in the community to inform them about opportunities in the world of engineering and computer science. AMS also created the ‘AMS Nuclear Engineering Graduate Fellowship’ for the University of Tennessee.
