Energy Technology — Alternative Energy
The Energy Technology - Renewable Energy Advanced Certificate, Energy Technology - Renewable Energy Basic Certificate, and Energy Technology - Alternative Energy Associate in Applied Science degree are designed to introduce students to the new emerging fields of Renewable/Alternative Energies. These programs will expose individuals to the many new jobs that are opening in this field related to different types of non-traditional types of energy efficient power generation, heating and cooling, alternative automotive propulsion, “Green” construction and energy related savings through better usage and design. These programs are not engineering programs rather they are general technical career general education programs which will focus on exposure to renewable/alternative energies.
Career Opportunities can be found in the following renewable/alternative energy areas: * Geothermal- Planning, Development * photovoltaic - Installations, Sales, Design * Wind Turbine - Manufacture, Assembly, Assessment * Automotive - Fuels, Battery * Fuel Cell Technology * Energy Auditing - Weatherization * Developing jobs in wind, photovoltaic, construction, automotive, consulting, design, and financial development.
Included in this program is course ENT 255 which is a preparation course for Building LEED Certification.
