Noel Schulz has been named the Edmund O. Schweitzer III Chair in Power Apparatus and Systems at Washington State University’s School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
The endowed chair supports WSU’s teaching and research in the fundamentals of power engineering, including electromagnetics, controls, communication theory, high voltage materials and practice, and was established thanks to gifts from Edmund and Beatriz Schweitzer, and the employee owners of Pullman-based Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories.
“At SEL, we like to say the best way to predict the future is to invent it,” said SEL President Edmund O. Schweitzer, III.
“This professorship will help generations of students invent their futures by helping them build a strong educational foundation rooted in the fundamentals. We are pleased to strengthen our partnership with WSU through this endowment.”
“SEL and WSU have enjoyed a remarkable partnership over the years,” said Mary Rezac, dean of WSU’s Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture. “Through this unique focus that combines research and education, we look forward to our continued collaborations to help meet our society’s growing need for safe, efficient and reliable power systems. Faculty support like this chair will be key for our “Drive to 25” efforts.”
