Power & Power Management Program
“Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth…these are the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security, and women’s empowerment. Solutions for one problem must be solutions for all,” said Ban Ki-moon, former Secretary-General of the United Nations.
The development, management, and responsible use of sustainable energy resources is a critical national and global issue. This program at GU prepares engineers who deal with energy efficiency, alternative energy systems, and energy services. Students learn about renewable energy sources and reducing the amount of energy used by communities. The Power Engineering program teaches students how electric power is generated, transmitted, and distributed. Classes analyze power and distribution systems, how they work, and ways to improve them. Energy and power engineers work with various natural resources, like fossil fuels or petroleum, and try to increase renewable or sustainable energy sources such as wind, solar and wave power, biomass, hydroelectricity, or nuclear power. Professionals focus on finding more efficient and clean ways to supply energy and develop innovative technologies and methods to meet the global need for electricity.
This program in the Department of Electrical Engineering at GU introduces the student to the typical and new energy resources and how to produce, distribute and manage this energy economically. In this program, the student will learn to combine sustainable thinking with deep technical competence. He/ she will gain practical experience through laboratory experiments in combination with computer exercises. This program is highly needed, especially with the multiplicity of traditional and renewable energy systems, their interdependence and the need to manage the energy system. Power management engineers will have an active role in the transition towards a sustainable energy system. He/ she will work on developing technology, models, and smart control of sustainable systems for energy generation, storage, or distribution at the local, regional, or (inter)national level.
