Emery, Fotios

I discovered power engineering my junior year when I began work as a research assistant for WEMPEC, and that passion increased after volunteering as the electrical engineering lead for the WiscWind team.

Laning, Alexander

I took a power fundamentals class and discovered how complex and difficult effective power distribution is on a national scale and I was in awe that we manage to do it at all.

McCormick, Riley

My interest in Power Engineering deepened after taking ECE 355. “This opened my eyes to the aspects of power engineering outside of electrical distribution and started my interest in power electronics and electric machines.”

Niccum, Shea

I wanted to to go into a field where I could contribute to technologies to mitigate climate issues. In particular, I’m interested in improving renewable energy integration with the grid, whether that’s by making those technologies fit in the
current infrastructure or
rethinking the grid entirely.

Perry, Cameron

My heart was set on microelectronics, but after taking a couple of Power Engineering classes and reading more about
alternate energy and microgrids,
I developed a new passion.

Ruzicka, Rachel

Engineering has always been my passion. I love how the technology
is always changing
and moving towards the
goal of providing clean energy.

Vasatko, Maxwell

I’m interested in the potential for renewable energy sources like wind and solar, and I’m 
fascinated by the workings of
the electric distribution network.
