Renewable Energy Technology A.A.S.
The A.A.S. degree program in Renewable Energy Technology prepares students to become entry-level installers and service technicians for small renewable energy systems, including small wind, solar photovoltaics, solar hot water, micro hydroelectric, and biofuels systems. This flexible program is designed to give students opportunities to choose coursework that supports their intended career path in renewable energy.
Class work in this curriculum focuses on the fundamental mathematics and science skills required to size, design, install and troubleshoot home-based renewable energy systems. Energy efficiency and energy conservation are continually examined throughout the curriculum. Laboratories are "hands-on" and will require the students to work safely on operational-scale energy systems, including wind turbines, solar PV and hot water systems,methane digesters, wood gasification units, micro hydroelectric systems, and home energy assessment tools.
Because the Morrisville State College faculty members have close working relationships with local renewable energy system installers, our students will get cutting-edge technical training that is demanded in this high-growth job sector.
Renewable Energy Technology is a ThinkPad University curriculum in which the use of laptop computers is integrated into courses.
