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.

Take the TechPath

TechPath

Want to learn how to navigate today’s tech-infused, dynamic and interconnected workplaces? Take the TechPath. Specially designed to help you gain the kinds of applied tech skills that are crucial in more and more companies today1, each TechPath class is powered by a learning rubric developed at DeVry called People-Process-Data-Devices, or P2D2. And because we believe TechPath is so important for our students and for helping to close the applied tech skills gap in this country, we’re offering our TechPath associates and bachelor’s degree programs to new students at a 20% savings2.
