MSU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering announces the 43rd annual Electric Power and Metering School

February 8, 2024

The 43rd annual Electric Power and Metering School will be held on February 19-22 at the Mill Conference Center in Starkville. Registration for the event is still open.

The Electric Power and Metering School provides an opportunity for the electric utility community in Mississippi to learn and discuss new opportunities in metering, testing, apparatus and relaying, and industry trends. The four-day event will include various events such as specialized workshops, vendor exhibits, lectures, and an industry keynote speaker, David Hart, Senior Vice President of Quanta Technology.

“Based upon the success of last year’s event, the metering school is back. We hope to expand the outreach to and interaction with our employers in the electric utility industry,” explained Jason Keith, Dean of the Bagley College of Engineering.

Attendees will also have the chance to experience the spirit of Mississippi State with a Tuesday evening social at the Gridiron Club in Davis Wade Stadium and tickets to see MSU basketball take on Ole Miss at the Humphrey Coliseum.

The metering school was initially started by Paul B. Jacob, Ph.D., who ran the program from 1950 through 1990. After a short hiatus, the metering school began again in the summer of 2022 as the Electrical Power and Metering School. Parking is available at the Mill Conference Center.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Mississippi State University consists of 27 faculty members (including seven endowed professors), seven professional staff, and over 700 undergraduate and graduate students, with approximately 100 being at the Ph.D. level. With a research expenditure of over $14.5 million, the department houses the largest High Voltage Laboratory among North American universities. More information may be found on ECE’s website.
