Energy and Access Equity Talk

Summary of the information from the talk on “Energy Access and Equity” from Dr. Eduardo Cotilla-Sanchez:

The talk was based on research Dr. Eduardo Cotilla-Sanchez is doing regarding the integration of some ethical issues regarding energy accessibility into education.  There is currently very little research on how access to energy affects deeper socioeconomic issues, and the idea that Dr. ECS has is to increase the amount that people are thinking about problems regarding energy access before problems continue to grow.

Thank you EATON!

Thank you for a great tour! It gave me an insight to the current state-of-the-art ideas and how they are being implemented. Digital displays, silver plated copper, and a blast cage all warped up in the cleanest wiring I’ve ever seen! Truly a class act.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Analog and Power Systems Community of Practice!  The intent of this COP is to create a community to bring students interested in analog and power applications of electrical engineering together and to connect them to important resources.  Since this is the first year that the COP is active, members will have the exciting opportunity of helping to create a lasting and important resource and organization for future students.  Throughout the term, members will help to organize technical lectures, host and participate in outreach events, spearhead projects related to their interests, and build their own personal skills and resume; all while receiving professional development credits for senior design.  Team members will also be able to help interface existing clubs, courses, labs, and mentors together to create a comprehensive directory of analog and power resources.  Overall, the COP will be a fun time and a professional boon for those who get involved, and a lasting gift to future students.  Looking forward to working with you all.
