21st Century Skills for a 21st Century Workforce
A Partnership to Shape Our Future
Investing in the education, and the relevant technical and leadership skills, of employees creates a powerful corporate advantage, accelerates innovation in the energy industry and ensures our nation’s future.
Today, more than 70% of energy employers report difficulty finding quality candidates to fill positions as they face an aging workforce and stepped-up demands for new skills and updated technology applications that have largely gone unmet. Creative solutions and innovation happens when research and the development of commercial applications are bridged to economic development and workforce capabilities.
Working together, Clarkson proposes an education model for National Grid employees and its energy partners that will attract, develop and retain a talented workforce. By creating a strong corporate-university engagement, we can also leverage the practical experiences of working professionals with the signature research strengths of our faculty to further advance solutions to the energy sectors greatest challenges.
Together, we can meet our global responsibility to prepare and lead in energy services and innovation.

“I chose Clarkson because of the university’s outstanding reputation and because the program is 100% online. I can participate in classes remotely or view lectures at a later, more convenient time. Best of all, my final project correlates directly to work I am doing in my professional life.”

“Clarkson fills a much needed gap in the power area in graduate education. It’s one of the few institutions that provides coursework in power that is of any depth. There are some aspects of the field, especially. high voltage test and measurement techniques that you really cannot get anywhere else. That was a big factor in my decision to enroll. That, and the fact that I can pursue my degree remotely while working and raising a family.

“The Engineering Management program grabbed my attention because the curriculum included business aspects, like finance and management, which I had not yet explored and because it was different than the MBA programs that I had researched.. The cohort structure of the program makes it easy to build relationships with likeminded students who are also maintaining a full time career.”
