The Carnegie Mellon Electricity Industry Center (CEIC) was established in August 2001 after an extended competition sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation among a number of research universities.
The (CEIC) is one of 20 centers of excellence in different industries that the Sloan Foundation has established at 13 universities. CEIC's primary mission is to work with industry, government and other stakeholders to address the strategic problems of the electricity industry. In doing so, CEIC produces a cadre of well-trained researchers, many of which will continue to address the industry's problems in subsequent professional careers. In addition to doctoral education, CEIC has a broad educational mission which includes the development of university courses, special topic short-courses and curricular advice for training programs.
