NFPA Names First Power Partner University

Programs like the NFPA University Power Partner Program are made possible in part by the generous support of industry volunteers as well as NFPA Education and Technology Foundation and Pascal Society donors. Support these efforts by making a donation.

NFPA’s first-ever Power Partner is Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. The university teaches fluid power at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

Purdue’s undergraduate Engineering Technology and Agricultural Engineering degree programs teach a great deal of fluid power. Purdue is also involved in fluid power research projects through their graduate program at the Maha Fluid Power Research Center, the largest academic hydraulics lab in the United States.

Purdue students in these programs graduate with fluid power knowledge and skills that make them prime job candidates in the fluid power industry. Their additional participation in NFPA’s fluid power educational programs is an added benefit.

The NFPA University Power Partner Program is a recognition program designed to showcase universities that actively participate in all NFPA fluid power educational programs. The major objective for this program is to increase the amount of fluid power being taught in university agricultural, mechanical engineering and engineering technology degree programs while enhancing the student-to-industry connection.

Requirements

To be considered as a Power Partner, the university must:
