Electric Energy Storage and Li-ion Batteries Technology Capstone Training Program at SUNY Polytechnic Institute
Electric Energy storage is an emerging group of technologies that is enabling the operation of electrical vehicles, energy production systems such photovoltaics, wind, etc., electrical vehicles, and mobile electronic devices.
Who should attend: College students (4-years or 2-years Colleges) from any institution, who are interested in learning and be trained on battery fundamentals, electrical energy storage, and battery management systems to find related jobs or to advance within their current job. Students will be trained in a two semesters Capstone program offered in Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters.
Offered in Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters at SUNY Poly in Albany in person or virtually.
The program covers the fundamentals of energy storage technologies, giving you an understanding of battery cell manufacturing and teaching you the skills to manage storage units and innovate in this technology field. Faculty and industry experts will provide instruction through focused in classroom training and hands-on laboratory at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) in Albany, NY. Students will gain exposure to the aspects of building a battery from start to finish and in conjunction with power generation system. Students will be able to engage in many different opportunities for experiential learning and internships in energy storage. Students will get College credits for each semester participating to the program. This program is open to all College students.
Topics Included: Introduction to battery design, battery packaging and safety, battery Electrochemistry, battery testing, grid storage technology, recycling, and assignment of a special innovative project.
