Renewable Energy Technology A.A.S.

Students climbing an electrical thing

Your future’s so bright, you’re seeing green.

As a student in the SUNY Morrisville Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree program in renewable energy technology, your two years of hands-on learning can mean a fulfilling career in the latest energy technologies.

The program stresses learning by doing, and you will follow up lectures with lab work that applies concepts to actual practice.

You’ll take courses that teach you to size, design, install and troubleshoot residential and commercial renewable energy systems. The list of required courses can be found in the college catalog and the typical schedule of classes is provided as a PDF below.

The SUNY Morrisville campus will serve as your first real-world work setting, as you become familiar with the college’s farm-scale anaerobic digester, biomass gasification cogeneration systems (for electricity and heat), wind turbines, solar PV, solar thermal, micro hydroelectric and biodiesel operations.

As a graduate, you will be prepared to enter the field in installation, operations and maintenance of renewable energy systems.

Should you choose to continue your studies, you can transfer seamlessly into our Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) degree program in renewable energy.

Enhance your college experience through the Outdoor Recreation Club (ORC), which provides a variety of fun and adventurous outdoor recreational activities.
