Ishaan Bhimani, a second year student in ECE, was awarded 2018-19 IEEE Power & Energy Society scholarship. Selected students for this honor are high achievers with strong GPAs with distinctive extracurricular commitments who are committed to exploring the power and energy field.
According to IEEE PES, “power and energy engineers work with some of today’s most exciting technologies, developing solutions to problems that affect our lives and lifestyles. The PES Scholarship Plus Initiative provides scholarships and real world experience to undergraduates who are interested in power and energy engineering careers. Our undergraduate engineering scholarships aim to accomplish this goal by attracting highly qualified engineering students to the field. These students are the very individuals who will one day develop new green technologies, build the smart grid and change the way we generate and utilize power.”
Bhimani is from Issaquah, Washington and intends to focus on sustainable power systems and/or power electronics as a student in ECE.
