The List

Our Objectives

Provide PSMA Member Companies a resource to identify Educational and University Institutions, world wide, which have ongoing and active programs in power electronics. This will provide the Member Companies a source for attracting potential new employees and opportunity for possible partnering on Research and Development projects.

Provide the Educational and University Institutions an opportunity to promote their programs in power electronics to interested companies outside their immediate areas. This exposure could result in generating additional support for the institution from the power sources industry for ongoing and new programs. In addition the exposure will provide the students and graduates with additional options as they transition from the educational to the business community.

Student body description:

Undergraduate education is interdisciplinary, with engineering core courses common to all engineering specializations before taking more advanced classes in their area of interest.  This provides a broad background that is excellent preparation for interdisciplinary work in power electronics.  Education includes hands-on project work as well as rigorous analytical work.
