Transatlantic Energy-Research Experience


On April 8, 2018, EPIC (Energy Production and Infrastructure Center) at UNC Charlotte's William States Lee College of Engineering, welcomed 8 graduate students from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Karlsruhe, Germany as they take part in a six-month research exchange program. KIT is one of the largest and most prestigious research and education institutions in Europe and is known for its high quality of research work around the world. EPIC is a collaborative, multidisciplinary effort that is uniting the academic and research expertise of the university with the great wealth of energy engineering talent in the Charlotte Region. This partnership is a result of a "Memorandum of Understanding” signed in 2013, between KIT and EPIC with the purpose of building a trans-Atlantic energy bridge and aims to link academic and research initiatives of the two institutions around key energy issues. Four UNC Charlotte students will spend ten weeks in KIT over the summer as part of the exchange.
