The electric power industry is presently experiencing what has been described as the most revolutionary (and exciting) set of technological changes since the days of Edison. Apart from environmental pressures that demand a revised portfolio of energy resources, utilities are anticipating the development of a so-called “smart grid” that promises new opportunities for efficient and reliable use of electric power. The skills that electric power engineers will require are changing accordingly.
The MS in Electrical Engineering (Electric Power) is a program option for students seeking careers in the electric power industry. The plan of study combines traditional topics in power generation, transmission, and distribution with cutting-edge topics such as the integration of renewable energy sources in the “smart grid.”
International Students: This program is eligible for the OPT STEM extension.
