Renewable energy research and innovation is booming, resulting in big business and high-tech, high-paying jobs for skilled workers. In just two years, students in the Sustainable Energy Technology: Renewable Energy program are qualified to work as installation or maintenance technicians in renewable energy businesses, such as photovoltaic or passive solar, wind turbine technology, or geothermal systems. In addition, students learn a variety of skills that can be translated to industries outside of the renewable energy field, including troubleshooting electrical circuits and programmable controllers, wiring, and programming.
