The success of the National Manufacturing Institutes depends on manufacturing becoming a highly desirable job for the workforce of the future. PowerAmerica started that process its first year by engaging 225 freshman engineering students at North Carolina State University in their introduction to engineering course to the next generation of Power Electronics. Building a pipeline of talent excited about future manufacturing sets in motion our pathway to tomorrow. The demands for power includes all disciplines of engineering and matches the interests of young people in building a sustainable future through renewable and efficient energy sources.
