The Automotive Research Center is proud to announce our 20th Annual Program Review. We are a U.S. Army Center of Excellence for the modeling and simulation of ground vehicles, led by the University of Michigan. We focus on basic scientific problems associated with management of power and energy within vehicles, mobility and survivability of the complete vehicle system, including the human operator.

Water and energy are strongly linked and mutually dependent. We need water to generate energy – and we need energy to supply, use, and treat drinking water and wastewater. On the energy side of the equation, our reliance on fossil fuels requires us to use enormous amounts of water for energy production. If we fail to transition to a clean energy economy, water used for energy production is predicted to increase from 66 billion cubic meters (bcm) today to 135 bcm annually by 2035. Join the MEF to explore the water/energy nexus.​

As the new energy economy develops, it will bring the creation of new and different jobs.  What might some of those be, and what skills will be required?  What type of education will be needed to prepare for those jobs, and how will current offerings change? ​
