Renewable Energy Degree Specialization

Renewable Energy Degree Specialization

DeVry University's Renewable Energy specialization provides a strong engineering technology and electronics background with an emphasis on green technologies, such as wind, solar, geothermal and biomass power. As a graduate, you can be well-versed in alternative energy generation, as well as the impact of environmental science, economics and sociology on green technology.

You can also obtain the knowledge needed to understand how engineering design, planning and project management can utilize renewable sources of energy, along with the production, transmission and storage of sustainable energy sources. Our specialization in Renewable Energy can prepare you for Engineering Technology positions that are increasingly being affected by green technologies and initiatives.

Choose to specialize in the Renewable Energy degree specialization and earn a bachelor’s degree in Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) from DeVry University.
