Pakistani scholars prepare for their visit to the U.S.

On July 18, 2018, the U.S.-Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Energy (USPCASE) at Arizona State University (ASU) organized an orientation session for its sixth cohort of exchange visitors.  Thirty-eight students and faculty from NUST and UET Peshawar attended the session, facilitated by Andrew Sarracino, a program manager at ASU.  The participants learned about the U.S. immigration process, security checks, international arrival, and housing and transportation at ASU.  The seminar was followed by a teambuilding session for students. During the fall 2018 semester, exchange visitors will engage in energy research at ASU and OSU labs under the supervision of faculty.  The Pakistani scholars are expected to design and perform experiments in areas such as fuel cells, batteries, solar panels and more. They will also visit companies and utilities to learn about energy conservation and power generation in the U.S.
