Energy Industry Experts Available for the Classroom

Bringing the company to the classroom and the classroom to the company is a key component of the Office of Energy and Environment’s efforts to integrate the operational, academic, and research opportunities related to energy at Ohio State. To that end, OEE has invited Ohio State’s energy partner companies to make their experts available to provide presentations/talks in our classrooms, when and where an instructor believes an industry perspective would be beneficial.

The list of companies and experts will grow, and faculty are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. Currently available topics include (but are not limited to):

Competitive energy market tradingWeather forecasting
