Education & Outreach
We inspire and enable tomorrow’s power engineering talent by sharing responsibility, knowledge and opportunity across academia and industry.
The EPECentre, on behalf of its Power Engineering Excellence Trust (PEET) members, attracts students into engineering, develops talent and connects industry with those talents.
What we do
We spark interest early with outreach activities and events for primary and secondary school students. By showing them the broad possibilities and advantages of a career in power engineering, we’re encouraging budding fresh perspectives towards our industry. We also offer scholarships for school leavers.
To guide and equip the best of our next generation of power engineers, PEET funds are primarily used as undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships, and sponsorship of industry pertinent, entrepreneurial students’ groups (eg UC Motorsport). We also ensure students gain practical insight through industry field trips and site visits.
Connect industry and talent
Students are able to connect and collaborate with the industry to gain vital experience and develop career opportunities. Vice versa, the industry has access to a pipeline of talent. PEET activities through EPECentre include events, field trips, career events and scholars’ functions.
