GE and UConn collaborate to identify new electrical distribution products
October 15, 2012
GE and the University of Connecticut's School of Engineering recently announced plans to continue collaborative efforts to identify new electrical distribution products through a five-year, $7.5 million dollar investment. The funding will help to establish fellowships for graduate studies, GE-sponsored research programs and an endowed GE professor position at the school's department of engineering.
Additionally, up to $3.3 million of the funding has been earmarked for GE-advised research at UConn regarding materials, advanced circuit breaker technologies and manufacturing. Mun Y. Choi, UConn’s interim provost and executive vice president of academic affairs, explains that this support will help the university attract top professionals to stay at the forefront of the field.
"With this commitment, GE is forging greater collaboration among world-class scholars, researchers and industry leaders ... Cutting-edge research and education are vital to both UConn and GE as we strive to train leaders and manufacture products that will be successful in the global economy," said UConn president Susan Herbst.
Individuals, programs and organizations that rely on fundraising to fuel sustainable operations might find nonprofit fundraising software
advantageous. The solutions can facilitate the process of identifying grant opportunities, generate reports that demonstrate current financial need and showcase previous achievements.
