Wind Energy Technology

Wind Energy Technology LS WET CC

The wind energy industry is the fastest growing segment of renewable energy production. U.S. and Canadian commercial wind farms are experiencing annual growth of 25 percent. Employers seek skilled technicians for operation and maintenance activities in local wind farm settings. There is also intense demand for upper-level technicians within U.S. and international wind turbine manufacturers, including installation technicians, quality control technicians and warranty and commissioning technicians. Operation and maintenance positions remain with a given wind farm location; other technicians travel extensively with the development of new wind farms and repair/retrofitting of wind farms around the world.

Shared programs give students to additional programs than they would have at their local college. Where programs are in high demand, two or more colleges may agree to share program components at the individual colleges. Therefore, students may be asked to attend certain classes at a college outside of their current district to fulfill the program requirements. For more information please contact one of the colleges listed.
