December 4, 2018

The Department of Industrial Engineering & Operations Research will host the semi-annual industry-university meeting for the Power Systems Engineering Research Center (PSERC) on December 5-7 at UC Berkeley.  The agenda for the meeting can be viewed here.

The purpose of PSERC is to empower minds to engineer the future electric energy system, to pursue, discover, and transfer knowledge, to produce highly qualified and trained engineers, and to collaborate in these pursuits.

The goals are to work toward:

  • An efficient, secure, resilient, adaptable, and economic electric power infrastructure serving society
  • A new generation of educated technical professionals in electric power
  • Knowledgeable decision-makers on critical energy policy issues
  • Sustained, quality university programs in electric power engineering

PSERC was established in 1996 as an NSF Industry/University Collaborative Research Center. It includes 12 universities and 40 industry members.  IEOR Professor Shmuel Oren is a co-founder and Berkeley site director of PSERC

The department looks forward to welcoming industry and university professionals to Berkeley to work on building the next generation of power systems.
