Wind Energy & Turbine Technology
The curriculum leads you to a career as a specially trained electronics-mechanical technician with an emphasis on Wind Energy and Turbine applications. You will be directly responsible for the trouble-shooting and repairing turbine equipment within the laboratory and gain hands-on experience on learning to operate and maintain the systems that make a wind turbine function whether it's an electrical, pneumatic, communications, computer, control or hydraulic system. Safety is a critical part of the wind energy industry and upon completion of the program you'll be able to practice those principles in industry.
You'll also learn all about SCADA (that stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition). It's the utility industry standard computerized system that controls the wind tower network. You'll also find that knowledge of all the systems you'll learn in the Wind Energy Technology Program is important not only to wind energy but also to many other types of companies in the utility industry.
We invite you to do some research?on?our program and visit our campus. The WET program appeals to people who want to become technicians?and seek skills that will open up employment opportunities with the Wind Turbine industries.
