Advance Energy Technologies
The world wants more energy while eliminating fossil fuels. Electric power consumers want smart grids that distribute power and communicate with homes and businesses, equipment and appliances and even electric cars as they recharge. How can we build energy infrastructures that meet these demands? Clarkson University's Master of Science in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in power engineering prepares you to address these important challenges.
