NJ Wind University Initiatives Program

The University Initiatives to Advance Offshore Wind (UI) program is designed to support programs that build long-term industry-valued expertise in offshore wind. Rutgers has received $124,000 to support three projects as part of the UI program.

Educational Initiatives for a Resilient Offshore Wind Economy in NJ

Project Lead

Josh Kohut -

Develop and deliver modular curricula across various technical, business, environmental, engineering, and policy topics related to offshore wind. The modules will be designed for delivery into a wide range of current Rutgers courses and for presentation as standalone programs. In addition, these modules will be organized and “scaffolded” into digital badges that Rutgers' undergraduates and others can earn in Offshore Wind Energy. Stipends available.

Offshore Wind Symposium

Project Leads 

The Offshore Wind Symposium will be held at Richard Weeks Hall of Engineering at Rutgers–New Brunswick on the Busch Campus on January 12 to raise offshore wind awareness and showcase Rutgers’ capabilities. The symposium will provide a forum for industry, government, and Rutgers' academics to discuss challenges, collaborate on solutions, and build community engagement in this area.

Community Events and Shared Learning

Project Leads

Three in–person community-building events will be held at Rutgers–Camden, Rutgers–Newark, and RBHS (New Brunswick).

Each half-day event will consist of a “Speed Networking” component, and a “Problem Sharing” aspect. Notably, industry and students will be invited to attend the events to share and learn about job opportunities in the offshore wind sector. Stipends available.
