18-418 Electric Energy Processing: Fundamentals and Applications
The proposed option forms the kernel of what one may refer to as the ``modern electric energy systems graduate program in ECE”. It draws on unique domain and non-domain expertise. The curriculum recognizes the need for broad systems thinking.
Longer term, the basic approach is to have some courses offered by the domain experts (few) and then many offered in a modular way (by teams of domain and non-domain experts). The modular courses would be the first of their kind, would draw on on-going research thinking and team formation and should be quite attractive to those graduate students specializing in general disciplines with an interest in applying their methods to future energy systems.
