Martin Family Foundation provides funding for sustainable and renewable energy in engineering education
Thursday, October 21, 2021
ECE bolsters its engagement in green energies due to the generous support of the Martin Family Foundation.
The Martin Family Foundation has provided generous financial resources to the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) to enhance and advance renewable, sustainable and clean energy technologies. Such technologies include energy harvesting, smart micro-grids, smart energy systems, electric vehicles, and battery storage. Funds from the Martin Family Foundation will be deployed to support student projects, scholarships, seminars, and tours for both students of ECE and the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology (CEAT).
“We are indeed thankful to Martin Family Foundation”, said Dr. Jeffrey L. Young, Head of ECE. “These funds along with our previous investments in renewable energy education and research will provide our students with an outsized experience in the fast-growing field of green technologies.”
