DAVID: In the quest to position The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga as a national leader in technology, Chancellor Roger Brown joined Congressman Zach Wamp in the public unveiling and demonstration of a campus fuel cell project that could meet the goals of energy independence outlined by President Bush in his State of the Union Address.
Through the federally funded research project, the UT SimCenter at Chattanooga will independently test the fuel cell performance in terms of compliance with Department of Energy standards and long-term usage. This project bodes well with Chancellor Roger Brown’s vision of state-of-the-art degree programs in both content and equipment.
