“While I have seen many such [renewable energy] programs in the US and Canada, I have seen none which compare to Morrisville’s. In terms of diversity of programs, quality of faculty and staff, depth of instruction, and “passion,” [MSC’s Renewable Energy program] is far ahead of the competition.”

Course Description

Applied Hydraulics Hydropower

This course covers the basic concepts of water hydraulics as applied to hydropower generation. The course is introductory in nature and is intended to provide basic review of fluid static and hydrodynamic conditions as applied to micro- and mini-hydro power generation systems. Focus will be on the utilization of the conservation of energy principle to establishing the conditions that will impact the selection of a hydropower generation system along with the assessment of how to harness energy from flowing fluids (water). Prerequisites: MATH 102 3 credit (2 lecture hour, 2 laboratory hours), spring semester

Admissions Requirements

The requirements for admission to this program are an S.A.T. score of at least 500 in math and 500 in critical reading. Additionally, incoming students will be required to have successfully completed two defined units of science and two defined units of math (three defined units of each is preferred).

The A.A.S. degree in Renewable Energy Technology will be a demanding curriculum for incoming students, as there are strong mathchemistryphysics, and electrical engineering components to the program. SAT scores, combined with math and science units, and their high school average will help to ensure that incoming students will be able to handle a rigorous curriculum.
