A key enabler to the growth and success of the local battery ecosystem is education and training of its growing workforce.


CalCharge, with its Partner Member, SJSU, launched “battery university,” a first-of-its-kind MS Degree program that seeks to expand the skilled workforce needed by this rapidly growing and changing industry. The program launched in fall 2014, and consists of a series of graduate level courses that can be taken as individual courses through an open university model, or as a whole to earn a Masters of Science in Engineering with an emphasis in battery technologies.  It will include both overview and advanced continuing education classes, as well as seminars and forums on timely topics including technical, market and policy developments.
