Enhance Your Bachelor’s Degree by Earning a Certificate.
The US electric energy industry is facing a shortage of engineering talent. To correct this problem, employers have become more aggressive in hiring graduating engineers and have become interested in retraining existing engineering staff. They recognize the need for highly trained staff who are qualified to handle their research and development needs as well as the application of new technology.
Electric Power Engineering
Electrical engineers who have graduated or will be graduating with an undergraduate degree have an opportunity to advance in multiple fields, including control, communications, electromagnetics, electronics, power and energy systems, and signal processing. You can choose to focus on devising ways to efficiently take energy from turbines, fuel cells, or hydroelectric plants and transfer it to homes and businesses. Or you might develop sensors to detect IEDs, improvised explosive devices, saving thousands of lives.
