The objective of Power minor is to educate students about generation and delivery of electric energy. There are four core sources from which the first two provide fundamental knowledge in understanding electrical circuits and networks and the last two deal with generation and conversion, transmission and distribution, design and analysis of power and energy systems. The optional courses provide complementary and related knowledge in design, control, and application of power and energy systems. Taking this minor will prepare students for working in the power utility industry, construction industry, submarine and aircraft manufacturing, and/or attending graduate school for research and development in smart grid and other electric energy related technologies.
