Program Coursework

Prepare for A Green Future with a Renewable Energy Specialization

Through our Tech Core curriculum and focused engineering technology coursework, you’ll be armed with tech skills you can put to work tomorrow across three areas – Engineering Technology, Information Technology and Software and Information Systems. The Electronics Engineering Technology degree program with a specialization in Renewable Energy may include these courses:

Conservation Principles in Eng. & Technology w/Lab

Introduction to Alternative Energy Technologies w/Lab

Power Electronics & Alt. Energy Applications w/Lab

Electric Machines and Power Systems with Lab

Environmental Sociology

Renewable Energy: Science, Technology and Management

Conservation Principles in Eng. & Technology w/Lab

In class, you'll solve problems using fundamental engineering concepts. During the lab, you'll model systems involving alternative energy deployment, biomedical technologies, and industrial process controls.

Introduction to Alternative Energy Technologies w/Lab

In this course, you'll address renewable alternative energy technologies including photovoltaics, solar thermal systems, wind power, fuel cells, hydroelectricity, the smart grid, alternative fuels, geothermal power, waste heat and biofuels.

Power Electronics & Alt. Energy Applications w/Lab

In this renewable energy course you'll learn about all aspects of power electronics, as well as build the power electronic circuits needed to convert power from both traditional systems and alternative energy sources such as solar and wind.

Electric Machines and Power Systems with Lab

This course presents electric machines and power systems, with emphasis on renewable energy applications.

Environmental Sociology

You'll explore environmental issues as perceived by society, including ideologies, beliefs, economic and gender-based factors that could affect finding and providing sustainable solutions to environmental problems.

Renewable Energy: Science, Technology and Management

In this renewable energy course, you'll be introduced to the science and technology behind renewable energy technology while considering the business decisions required to invest in - and manage - systems using the technology.
