The Wind Energy Technology Program will prepare students for entry-level employment as wind energy equipment technicians, often referred to as Wind Smiths. A wind energy technician is a key member of a team of people responsible for the operation and maintenance of electrical energy generation equipment and control systems for wind turbine generation systems. Individuals interested in the Wind Energy Technology program must be prepared for working in confined spaces and at heights greater than 100 feet, should be capable of lifting and carrying loads of 75 pounds or more, and will be required to make a vertical climb of 300 feet with only two rest stops; often several times in a day. The work may be in extreme weather conditions at remote locations for extended periods. The Wind Energy Technology program is focused on the maintenance and repair of commercial wind turbines; gear boxes, generators, digital controllers, and other industrial maintenance skills.
Industries interested in graduates from the program include, but are not limited to Wind Energy Farm owners and operators and firms that specialize in the maintenance and overhaul of wind-powered generation equipment.
