Collegiate Program Connects Students with Industry

The collegiate program is intended for electrical engineering students to learn more about the electric power industry and enable them to experience the excitement and opportunity the industry offers. The program includes a student poster contest, a student-guided tour of the exhibit hall and tour of Oncor Electric Delivery’s Technology Demonstration & Education Center (TDEC) – the most advanced microgrid in the nation. The collegiate program will also include a student luncheon followed by a panel discussion and Q&A around career progression, academic studies, consulting and R&D.
