University Power Programs

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. Information is now available on power engineering programs at US and Canadian universities. Through a periodic survey by the Power & Energy Education Committee (PEEC) of the IEEE Power & Energy Society, information has been assembled on relevant university education programs to help students, parents, student advisors, recruiters, among others, learn about current education opportunities. The information can also be useful to faculty looking to improve university education programs, and to government and industry supporters of research and education to better understand the scope and breadth of power engineering programs.

In 2016, the IEEE Power & Energy Society invited 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.
