Our program prepares students for careers in sustainability, renewable energy, and related industries, including wind energy, solar power, biofuels, and energy management.
Renewable Energy is a major component of the sustainability economy that employs approximately 8.1 million persons around the world and 769,000 in the United States, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency. The largest portion of the job market is in solar photovoltaics, followed by liquid biofuels and wind energy. Jobs in the U.S. solar industry grew dramatically over the last two years—as much as 12 times more than overall job creation.
Our Renewable Energy program is designed to prepare students for employment opportunities across a variety of industries, including solar, wind, and biofuels, as well as jobs in regulatory and government agencies. Students are encouraged to complete two internships in their field of study. These experiences are great resume-builders and often lead to jobs in the industry.
