Abstract

This paper recognizes the advantages and potentials of collaborative electric power engineering education efforts in the United States and Mexico. Data are quoted on enrollments in graduate power programs in power engineering in Mexico. A case is made for the enhancement of Mexico-U. S. binational educational efforts. A brief discussion of engineering human resource needs is given, and one example is cited for the enhancement of the bulk electric transmission grid across North America is given. This is a high voltage DC 'backbone' that spans Canada-United States-Mexico. Conclusions are drawn on the viability of these binational educational programs.
