PESNU is the Northeastern University student chapter of the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES). It shares the same goal as PES to provide scientific and engineering information on electric power and energy for the betterment of society, and the preferred professional development source for its members. It aims to provide educational and social gatherings that bring students and faculties in NU as a community, and connect them to other power and energy professionals.
The Power & Energy Society (PES) provides the world's largest forum for sharing the latest in technological developments in the electric power industry, for developing standards that guide the development and construction of equipment and systems, and for educating members of the industry and the general public. Members of the Power & Energy Society are leaders in this field, and they — and their employers — derive substantial benefits from involvement with this unique and outstanding association.
