Education and Global Outreach

Take Advantage of Educational Resources and Connections Across the Globe

One of the Society’s critical missions is to uphold the educational aspects of power electronics and their applications. The PELS Digital Media and Education Committees contribute, lead, and support this mission by creating interest, disseminating knowledge, and fostering engagement among the PELS members and the public.

As part of our work in this area, we are:

  • Using a variety of digital platforms to provide educational material and discuss topics of interest. 
  • Creating opportunities to support students and young professionals who pursue careers in the power electronics field.
  • Building strong global relationships with corporations, educational institutions, and organizations worldwide for collaboration.
  • Investing in educational outreach to shape the engineers of tomorrow.
