Renewable Energy (AAS.RNRG)

This program prepares students for entry level positions into the field of renewable energy technicians and technical maintenance. Emphasis is placed on "green" technologies including electricity, physics, chemistry, wind, photovoltaics, solar thermal, bioenergy, energy efficiency, and smart grid technology. There is a critical skill shortage of trained workers knowledgeable with issues relating specifically to renewable energy and who can troubleshoot renewable energy systems.

Program requirements may change over time. Specific degree/graduation requirements are determined by a degree audit.
