Research Highlights: Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Energy Department Awards $2.9 Million to the University of Tennessee’s Min H. Kao Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science to Advance Master’s and Doctoral Training in Power Electronics.

The training curricula in power electronics – which control or convert electrical energy into usable power – will include cutting-edge wide bandgap semiconductors that can operate at higher temperatures, voltages, and frequencies, and are more durable and reliable than silicon-based counterparts. The five-year traineeships programs will be implemented beginning in the fall 2016 school year and are concentrated on advanced power electronic equipment engineering, design, and manufacturing
