Transmission & Distribution

Training the next generation of power engineers

The power grid of the future is needed today. Large-scale wind and solar projects, reliability improvements, replacing aging infrastructure, coal-to-gas plant conversions -- the power industry continues to invest in substantial transmission projects, and all they all require power engineers. 

Gonzaga students learn from industry leaders. Designed in collaboration with power experts, our program provides the necessary technical and managerial skills to advance careers in the rapidly-evolving power industry. From costing a project to dealing with land right-of-ways, students develop the skills necessary for transmission and distribution work. Our graduates over the past decade are part of the new generation of power industry engineers.

The online learning environment gives you the flexibility to earn your graduate degree while continuing to work in your current position. Each course consists of recorded presentations, readings, homework assignments, and discussion board you complete on your own weekly schedule.
