ECE 584 Electric Power Engineering Practicum II

3 Credit Hours

This Capstone course is the culminating course/event for all the other courses and content a student has undertaken to achieve the Masters in Electric Power Systems Engineering (EPSE) degree from North Carolina State University. It is the intent of this course that the student will bring to bear all the learnings and knowledge from the previous courses to show competence in the field of Power Systems Engineering. Specifically, students are expected to complete an industry project in a team format, demonstrating full mastery of the communications, project management and technical skills learned in previous and concurrent courses. In addition, the students will develop fully annotated project reports and PowerPoint presentations, and present these to their corporate sponsor and the NCSU EPSE faculty advisors. Throughout this course, we expect students to participate with their team members, sponsoring companies and faculty advisors, sharing their progress and insights, and helping one another.
