Project data has not yet been submitted.
The University of Kentucky Research Foundation is creating a Power and Energy Institute of Kentucky (PEIK) at the College of Engineering. In close collaboration with industry, the PEIK will combine existing power engineering courses within the College with newly created courses and laboratories, and coordinate with relevant courses in other engineering and non‐engineering fields to provide students with an attractive clearly‐marked pathway into the power engineering workforce. This project will grant baccalaureates, graduate degrees, and certificates of completion for the Professional Development Program.
- Workforce Training
- Creation of a new Center for Power Engineering
- Continuing education for working engineers
- Undergraduate, graduate, and professional development
- After five years, 425 additional undergraduate engineers and 310 graduate engineers with power and energy coursework. There will have been 600 professional development course enrollments over these five years
- After 10 years, the program will produce 950 undergraduate engineers and 670 graduate engineers with power and energy coursework
