Building a smarter, more resilient grid requires an educated and adaptable workforce that can address many challenges associated with this progressive and exciting field. TCIPG offers a variety of professional development programs and resources for new and current practitioners.
Our week-long, intensive summer schools provide practitioners with essential principles of cybersecurity and power grid systems, with an emphasis on understanding how to apply these concepts to an evolving, smarter energy system. Participants may qualify for Professional Development Hours (PDH) and Continuing Education Units (CEU).
Professional Master's Degree Programs
Two of TCIPG's academic institutions offer master's education programs aimed at professionals working in power and energy systems:
- Professional Master's Degree in Electric Power Engineering - this online program is offered at Washington State University.
- Master of Engineering in Energy Systems - this one-year program is offered at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
- Master of Science in Engineering in Electrical Engineering - this online program is offered at Arizona State University.
Annual Industry Workshop
One way to stay informed about current challenges and topics in cybersecurity for power and smart grids is to participate on our industry interaction board and attend our annual industry workshop. Participants may also qualify for Professional Development Hours (PDH) and Continuing Education Units (CEU).
Seminar Series on Technologies for a Resilient Power Grid
Our monthly seminar series is broadcast live on the web during the academic year and archived on YouTube.
Short Courses, Workshops, Hands-On Training
TCIPG is regularly invited to present workshops and short courses to small groups of utility, industry vendors, and government stakeholders. We are also developing a training platform that facilitates the rapid education of a wide variety of participants on important aspects of smart grid cyber security.
