Ivy Tech and Purdue University is combining education and industry to form the Crossroads SmartGrid Training Program to develop education courses to minimize the education-workforce gap in the electric energy sector. Educational areas include systems management and security, information technology and power systems engineering, and training of line workers, technicians, and mechanics. The curriculum will train operators, technicians, engineers, and research scientists in college degree and certificate programs. Crossroads will use HUB technology developed at Purdue as a training module.
