Abstract

This presentation made as a part of a panel session provides the author's opinion regarding the likely characteristics, demands, and requirements of a future power engineering professor. Based on the scenario of a highly competitive university environment in terms of faculty resources and the need to excel at both teaching and research, this talk identifies the need for the future power engineering professor to have depth in traditional power engineering curricula and breadth in terms of ability to learn and adopt new material relating to support topics in control theory, economics, probability theory and risk analysis, computer engineering, electronics and sensor technology, etc. The talk also highlights the need for the future professor to effectively team up with researchers in other areas and other universities to successfully garner highly competitive research funding from diverse funding agencies.
