PULLMAN, Wash. – A group from Bangladesh traveled halfway across the world to learn to better develop electrification in their country from Washington State University experts in power engineering.

“We are working for the villagers,” said Abdul Aziz, executive engineer with his country’s Rural Electrification Board (REB), whose members will spend several weeks in Pullman. “We are learning methods at WSU that will help us bring the villagers better service and an improved distribution system.”

Without the REB and other electricity boards, the agriculture-based rural communities would not have electricity, he said.

Seminar Series on Academic Job Search

The Seminar Series on Academic Job Search is designed to help increase the placement of our graduates in academic positions by introducing them to the mechanics of the job search process. The series consists of a number of one-hour talks that share the perspective of different stakeholders in the process.

The primary target audience are third-year and later PhD students as well as postdoctoral fellows in the College of Engineering and Architecture. However, attendance is open to all interested.

The Series is sponsored by WSU ESI Center, School of EECS, and College of Engineering and Architecture.
