Become a WEMPEC Student

STAND OUT AS AN INNOVATIVE ENGINEER

Our advanced degree programs will prepare you for leading-edge positions in industry or academia. Graduate students will learn both theoretical as well as hands-on applied knowledge in power electronic converters, machine design, power converter controls, and alternative energy. As a WEMPEC student, you will have plenty of opportunity to develop your technical presentation skills. During weekly research group meetings,  on a rotation basis, you will be asked to present the progress  of your research project to your faculty advisor and student colleagues. In addition, during our annual review meeting  with sponsors, you will have an opportunity to discuss your research during poster sessions.
