UMP recently received an ETAP power lab software package from ETAP for use in the faculty of electrical and electronic engineering. The donation by Operation Technology, Inc., includes a 3 years license allowing up to 20 students to work concurrently and is valued at nearly $482,500.
This grant received by Dr. Mojgan Hojabri, senior lecturer of faculty of electrical and electronic engineering from Dr. Farokh Shokooh, founder, president and CEO of ETAP. “ETAP allows students the opportunity to do real-world practical problems utilizing the most sophisticated electrical power engineering software package available. So, we are extremely grateful to Operation Technology and specially Dr. Shokooh for this valuable donation.” explained Dr. Mojgan Hojabri.
The academic edition of the ETAP Enterprise Solution provides educational institutions with access to the latest technology for the design, modeling, simulation and operation of electrical power systems. Blending ETAP into standard power system curriculum gives students an excellent opportunity to learn and apply essential power system concepts utilizing the most sophisticated electrical engineering software package available for offline solutions.
Dr. Kamarul Hawari , chair of the electrical and electronic engineering faculty, said, “We’re grateful for this gift since it allows us to bring more of the latest technology into our classrooms.”
