GE Collaborates With The University Of Connecticut On $7.5 Million Advanced Technology Initiative

“We’re excited about the opportunity to collaborate with UConn’s talented engineering students and faculty to develop new electrical-protection technologies that will advance the industry,” said Paul Singer, senior executive of engineering at GE’s Industrial Solutions business. “We will benefit from UConn’s strong R&D expertise in electrical contact and insulation materials, magnetic and thermal management and arc-physics modeling. We look forward to bringing new technologies to our customers that will provide high performance, more compact circuit breakers that provide advanced protection.”

A new chapter in the long-term relationship between GE and the university, the new agreement also empowers both institutions to support the activities of the new state-funded UConn Technology Park, which is currently in development in Storrs, Conn. The Connecticut legislature recently allocated $172 million to develop the park’s 125,000-square-foot anchor building for industry partnerships in advanced science and engineering. Together with UConn’s new Eminent Faculty Program, these efforts will nurture activities leading to:
  • Innovation with industry, from startups to mid-size and large corporations.
  • An interface linking basic research and industrial applications.
  • Jobs, new business startups and economic development.

“GE’s strong support will enable us to recruit and retain internationally renowned faculty and talented students to solve challenging problems in collaboration with our industry partners,” said Mun Y. Choi, UConn’s interim provost and executive vice president of academic affairs.
