Abstract

Bruce Wollenberg shares his views on the power engineering, which is gradually disappearing from many college curriculums in the US. He reveals that University of Minnesota and many other US universities does not have a basic power engineering course. The universities are funding students for research work and engineering fields such as power engineering without sufficient outside funding have disappeared from the graduate curriculum. Bruce shares that power engineering program in Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) has also been affected. Industry input and support is required for a viable electric power education system in US universities. Bruce reveals that electrical utilities, manufacturers, and consulting companies must advertise and implement effective program to maintain ideal ration of Ph.D to M.S. graduates.
