What advice would you give other students?
“No matter what happens, finish what you start. Don’t be afraid to do more and get involved on campus. Don’t be satisfied with being average; it’s easy to be average, but it takes time and dedication to be great. Nothing great comes easy or happens overnight.”

Course DescriptionWind & Hydro Energy Systems
This course provides the student with a fundamental understanding of residential wind and hydroelectric energy systems and the potential to generate electricity in both grid-tied and off-grid integrated applications. Initial focus is on providing the student with a review of fluid dynamics, measuring and mapping wind and water resources, and on-site assessments. The focus will then shift to residential and farm-scale wind machines, generators, alternators and electricity. Students will then begin with technical and sociopolitical aspects of micro hydroelectric power generation as renewable energy systems. Prerequisites: PHYS 107, MATH 102, or permission by instructor. 3 credits (2 lecture hours and 3 lab hours), spring semester.
