What is CUSP™?
As the name implies, CUSP™ is a Consortium of Universities for Sustainable Power. This consortium will include universities that have come together to utilize, collectively evolve and promote the curriculum developed at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities with the help of funding from various organizations including NSF, ONR (Office of Naval Research), NASA and EPRI.
Our vision in creating this consortium is to create a global community of teaching/learning scholars whose mission is to provide a first-rate education in the field of Electric Energy Systems with an emphasis on sustainability.
This curriculum consists of the following 3 undergraduate courses (and 5 more graduate-level courses in Power Electronics, Electric Drives, Power Systems, Power System Protection and Electric-Machine Design being developed, partially through ONR funding):
- Power Electronics
- Electric Machines and Drives, and
- Electric Power Systems
Can combating climate change result in renaissance of electric power engineering?
