Wind energy, like many modern engineering fields, is a collaboration of disciplines. If one were asked which areas of expertise are needed to design a wind turbine, it would be difficult to come up with a definitive list. The team would definitely include electrical, mechanical, and control engineers, and it would likely combine these skills with those of physicists, meteorologists, and materials scientists, to name but a few. In academia, important research in wind energy is undertaken in all these areas and more, and much of the ground breaking research is conducted at the boundaries between disciplines.
