The Renewable Energy degree integrates the study of engineering, technology, science, and business to prepare graduates to design, implement, and manage renewable energy systems and similar technologies. Students learn to evaluate renewable resources, complete site assessments, design systems, and model performance. Renewable energy courses offer hands-on experiences that include design, site assessment, systems installation, biomass processing, system performance monitoring, and troubleshooting. Students also develop and apply theoretical tools to predict system performance and utilize computer-aided technology for design. Technologies covered include solar PV, renewable heating, wind, and biomass.
