Green – or clean – energy refers to energy generated using renewable sources, such as solar energy, wind, waste and water.
This program focuses on the fundamentals of green energy and illustrates how solar, wind and other clean sources can be efficiently integrated into power systems. Students will be trained in power engineering topics such as power electronic converters, machines, control coupled with modules related to renewable energy sources.
The job market for green energy jobs continues to grow at a pace 12 times as fast as the US economy leaving employers looking to hire appropriately trained workers.
Potential careers in this rapidly evolving area encompass industry sectors ranging from solar, wind and smart grid technologies.
The degree can be specialized using electives and a portfolio assessment of the skills acquired through the degree coursework. Classes will be modestly sized and emphasize best classroom practices while employing online resources to reinforce the classroom experience.
Students will take 10 courses for a total of 30 credits. The program may be completed in one calendar year of study.
