Worcester Polytechnic Institute Establishes Energy Sustainability Project Center
Oct 22 13
Worcester Polytechnic Institute has established an Energy Sustainability Project Center that will help to coordinate and support undergraduate student project work in all aspects of energy and across all areas of academic inquiry at the company. The center will begin its operations on the company's campus, and will initiate the process of establishing one or more off-campus collaborations with national laboratories and the energy industry. The center will coordinate student projects with the many faculty research activities that range from "Smart Grid" design to energy storage to fuel cells. It will also foster WPI's distinctive approach to technical education that always considers the effects of technology on people. The center is organizing seminars that relate the broad aspects of sustainability to the immediate needs for a reliable, economical energy supply. The new project center, an outcome of recommendations from the Provost's Energy Task Force Report, will help develop an educational approach to prepare WPI students, developing an undergraduate minor, and degree program.
