Solar energy engineering and commercialization (PSM)

Partners

Solar energy partners

Collaborations with the solar energy industry (small and large companies), solar energy trade groups, government entities, and nonprofit organizations concerned with solar energy are a vital component of the PSM program.  We have secured and continue to expand active partnerships ranging from mentoring applied research projects to serving on the Industrial Advisory Board.  Organizations potentially interested in providing any contribution, or wishing to join our list of solar energy partners, should contact the Program Manager, Karen Dada at (480) 965-5584 or karen.dada@asu.edu.

External advisory board

The Industrial Advisory Board is tasked with providing direction for the program, including identifying desired learning outcomes, identifying potential industry partners to participate in student applied projects, and identifying potential students and student sponsors. The Board will consider current and proposed course offerings with the goal of continuous improvement of the PSM SEEC program.

We are extremely pleased to welcome the following distinguished members of the PSM SEEC advisory board:
