Power-HS-LPOur sixth annual energy symposium is right around the corner! In the meantime, let’s look back at last year’s event, which was a huge success for our guests, faculty, staff, and students in attendance.

The 2015 Energy Symposium brought experts in the power industry to WPI for the fifth year in a row. Attendees learned about the educational changes and research initiatives which support emerging developments in electric energy policy, grid modernization, and cyber security. Updates were also given on the creation and growth of a pipeline of well-qualified, diverse future power-systems experts to support the field in the future.

Dr. Miroslav Begovic, President of the IEEE Power and Energy Society, delivered the event’s keynote address on the important role volunteering plays in building a career in the energy industry. WPI undergraduate and graduate students also had the opportunity of networking with established professionals in their fields of study, making it a rewarding experience for all.
