Looking to the Next Generation
As a six-time donor to the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Scholarship Plus Initiative, Ulteig recognizes the need to promote the power and energy industry to young engineers. “Maintaining a healthy pipeline of talented professionals will ensure that the industry remains vibrant and compelling,” said Craig Davies, Director, Corporate Marketing and Communications. Ulteig has provided funding for dozens of scholarships—with more than 50% of Scholars repeat recipients—leading to talented and career experienced power engineers and preserving the future of the field.
Jason Hoskins, Vice President, Innovation, Development and Quality, says of the IEEE PES Scholarship Initiative, “There is no doubt this Initiative makes a difference in the lives of students. I am pleased Ulteig has taken part in encouraging the development of the next generation of electrical power engineers in our industry.” The scope of impact and exposure that PES Scholars receive are compelling reasons to support the IEEE Foundation, stressed Craig. “Companies like Ulteig will ultimately benefit from these students’ contributions. Supporting the IEEE Foundation is an opportunity for Ulteig to give back to an organization that is dedicated to the development of a strong future workforce.”
Many of Ulteig’s employees are IEEE members, gaining knowledge and professional expertise through IEEE’s resources. “Ulteig’s values very much align with the Mission and Vision of IEEE—both organizations strive to improve and strengthen the fundamental elements of society and everyday life by leveraging the skills and competencies of those who serve as technical professionals,” said Craig.
