As the Fall 2014 academic semester begins, graduate students begin to shop for classes and thesis research topics.
Today, the Engineering Systems and Management Faculty met to present their research topics to the incoming class. If you missed it, get in touch with the ESM Department Head: Prof. Mohammad Omar.
We also presented the LIINES research overview and you can find the powerpoint slides powerpoint slides here. It includes four research themes:
- Smart Power Grids: As a full energy value chain including power generation, power transmission & distribution and building systems.
- Energy Water Nexus: Focusing on points of interconnection including power generation, desalination, water pumping and building systems.
- Electrification of Transportation: Focusing on electric vehicles, buses and trains as a point of interconnection.
- Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems: Automated manufacturing to support sustainable, mass-customized products.
More information on each of these can be found on the LIINES research page. Additionally, we have written several blog posts on each of these topics.
- Smart Power Grids
- Energy-Water Nexus
- Electrification of Transportation
- Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems
Good luck to all as we kick off the Fall Semester.
