With the ever-growing — and ever-more critical — demand for innovative energy alternatives that integrate with today and tomorrow’s power grids, sophisticated power engineers are in high demand. NYU-Poly’s unique Power Electronics and Systems Certificate will prepare you for a key role as a power engineer in electric utilities and in the transportation, power equipment, and defense industries.
Power engineers are engaged in the search for sustainable energy practices. They aim to achieve increasingly more efficient systems. This program is designed for you to become familiar with power equipment and systems — ranging from milliwatts, e.g., a mobile phone — to hundreds gigawatts — as in an HVDC transmission system.
