Power and Energy Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Program Type

The purpose of the proposed graduate certificate in Power and Energy is to provide students with state of the art knowledge in power and energy areas and produce well trained graduates in Power and Energy areas. It is anticipated that there will be a substantial shortage of power and energy professionals in the national labor force in the near future. To help train more power and energy engineers, the department of energy (DOE) issued a call for proposals on power and energy workforce training in December 2009. The college of engineering submitted a proposal and was awarded a grant to create a Power and Energy Institute of Kentucky (PEIK)to train the next generation of power and energy professionals. As part of the proposal, we have proposed to offer a graduate certificate in power and energy. In close collaboration with industry, the institute will combine existing UK College of Engineering power engineering courses with newly created courses to provide students with an attractive, clearly-marked pathway into the power engineering workforce.
