This fall, Wayne State University (WSU) in Detroit will become the first university in the United States to offer a full graduate engineering degree program in electric drive systems. Wayne joins the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and other schools in developing programs that aim to provide engineers with the expertise needed to develop the next generation of vehicles that don't rely on internal combustion engines for propulsion.

UM has had a smaller scale program within its graduate engineering program for the past two years that focused on battery technology. WSU will be open to about 200 students at a time with enrollment for this fall's semester closing on July 1. WSU is also offering certificate programs and undergraduate classes in electric vehicle engineering.

      That has got to be a stock photo from something else. No self respecting engineer would use a Mac.

        I'm an engineer, and I support this statement.

        And the guy to girl ratio is WAY off...

        I'm an EE and neither myself nor anybody I know uses a Mac.

        Another observation: those people look like MBA students with their pretentious outfits, not engineers.
