I'm excited to share a new development here at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)!
Last year, I met Brent Richardson of Dow. He noted that the power industry is losing specialized knowledge in cables as baby-boomers (like me) retire. Together, we formulated a plan to capture the knowledge of nationally recognized cable experts in a series of online, on demand courses offered through WPI and sponsored by Dow. This would enable utility engineers to obtain additional knowledge tailored to their need, on their schedule, and without an expensive, time-consuming trip to an offsite class.
The first two courses are available now. The next two under development and will be available later this year. The series is called Cable Tech Powered by Dow ( http://go2.wpi.edu/cabletech ). These Power Cable courses offer specialized knowledge, Continuing Education Units (CEU's), and are a great supplement to our existing, robust graduate Power Systems Engineering curriculum!
