Educational Opportunities in Power and Energy Engineering
Power and energy engineering provides ample opportunities for rewarding careers addressing critical local to global technical challenges. Universities throughout the world are providing the education needed for students to enter this engineering career field. Through a periodic survey from the IEEE Power & Energy Society, information on relevant university education programs in the U.S. and Canada has been collected to help students, parents, student advisors, recruiters, among others, learn about current education opportunities.
Results of the 2013-2014 University Power Programs Survey
The latest available power engineering education program information can be found below. The report linked contains a list of educational institutions that self-identified as having power and energy engineering faculty and courses. All information has been self-reported by a faculty member at each institution. Contact the institutions directly to get the most up-to-date information.

Invitation for University Participation in the 2015-2016 University Survey
The IEEE Power & Energy Society invites all accredited, 4 year institutions in the U.S. and Canada to participate in the 2015-2016 Power & Energy Education Committee (PEEC) Survey. The purpose of this survey is to collect data on the state of power and energy engineering education in the U.S. and Canada. Since it began, the survey has provided the engineering education community with valuable metrics and data on topics such as universities providing power engineering education, faculty members, curriculum trends, and research topics and expenditures. These data will be used to advertise your program here on the PES web page for university power programs. More information can be found at the PEEC Survey Overview & FAQ. The deadline for completing the 2015-2016 survey is October 14, 2016.
The universities listed below have responded to the 2015-2016 PEEC Survey.
