Center for Power Optimization of Electro-thermal Systems


The overall outcome of graduate student experiences in POETS is preparing technical leaders.

POETS graduates will be:

  • Uniquely equipped with entrepreneurial and leadership skills
  • Ready and able to capture and build on the wide variety of opportunities available to them
  • Empowered to create new generations of high power density products and possibly even new companies in this domain.

The training of POETS graduate students will include both multidisciplinary technical  knowledge that runs deep in their chosen domain of expertise, as well as breadth of training to understand non-technical aspects of leadership. These include items such as communication and teamwork. These types of students are known as “T” types since they combine both breadth and depth.
