ABB and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department are proud to host the ABB Distinguished Lecture Series in Power Engineering. Each semester, a nationally prominent expert will lecture on a topic related to recent developments in power technology and the smart grid. Distinguished speakers drawn from ABB, academia and the power industry will address the most timely and challenging topics of the power engineering and smart grid industries. Everyone is invited to attend, from undergraduates on up to faculty and friends of the department.
ABB's special relationship with the Electrical and Computer Engineering department and the FREEDM Center, and their proximity on Centennial Campus offers a tremendous opportunity to collaborate, share information and interact for the benefit of all.
All talks are scheduled to take place on NC State's award-winning Centennial Campus. Each talk will be free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served 30 minutes before each presentation.
