AT THE CORNER OF DISCOVERY AND INNOVATION

Discovery and innovation are the cornerstones of an engineering education. Students in the Opus College of Engineering have opportunities to work alongside faculty who are pushing research frontiers in their fields — and to apply what they learn in class to real-world problems for the benefit of society.

Dr. Nathan Weise receives $500,000 award from Department of Energy

Dr. Nathan Weise, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, has been awarded a $500,000 grant by the U.S. Department of Energy.

The grant is part of Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy’s program called Building Reliable Electronics to Achieve Kilovolt Effective Ratings Safely — also known as “BREAKERS.”

BREAKERS seeks to develop new medium-voltage, DC devices to better manage power by eliminating electrical faults, improving efficiency and reaction times, and potentially enabling greater proliferation of energy storage and renewable resources.
