University of Minnesota - Revitalization of Electric Power Engineering Education

November 2010

Building on their current electric power engineering program, the University of Minnesota (UMN) is revitalizing U.S. power engineering education by creating a consortium of a large number of universities that will share state-of-the-art laboratories in power engineering. Programs are collectively designed and shared with consortium universities who disseminate laboratories and curricula to non-member regional universities, and technical and community colleges. This method of dissemination enables flexibility in fulfilling each university's needs and facilitates information sharing with novel laboratories. The consortium is also supporting faculty development and providing new classroom materials. Establishing a foundation for graduate education and research in the areas of renewable energy such as wind, solar, storage, and energy conservation is also a part of these revitalization efforts.
