EPIC Affiliates

About EPIC Affiliates Program

In early 2016, the Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (EPIC) with input from its External Advisory Board initiated the EPIC Affiliates Program (AP), a membership program for existing and prospective industry and government partners looking to collaborate with EPIC. The EPIC AP’s main focus is energy workforce development. By bringing together industry, students, faculty, and research experts in disciplines of electrical and computer, civil and environmental, mechanical, and systems engineering, it aims to drive new advancements in the energy fields as it educates a new generation of engineering professionals.

The EPIC Affiliates Program is composed of representatives from corporations (“members”) who have purchased membership into the program. Members benefit from EPIC’s core capabilities in developing focused energy solutions in technology, workforce development, and preferred access to students with an energy concentration. The major roles of the AP:

  • Enhance energy workforce development by supporting education and experiential learning opportunities.
  • Provide a structure to connect EPIC Affiliates with UNC Charlotte research faculty and student expertise.
  • Members will benefit from EPIC’s core capabilities in developing focused energy solutions in technology, workforce development and preferred access to students with an energy concentration.
  • Aligning student recruitment programs to the needs of our Affiliates
  • Aligning student internship and exchange programs to the prevalence of North Carolina based multinational companies working within the global economy. 

Mission & Vision

EPIC AP’s mission and vision is to bring together industry, students, faculty and research experts in disciplines of electrical and computer, civil and environmental, mechanical, and systems engineering, all under one group. This synergy will educate a new generation of engineering professionals and drive new advancements in the energy fields.
