Renewable Energy Technology

Talk about your experience at Ecotech and its value to your life.

I learned many skills that are more valuable to my career than my degree. Being a true professional and working together with others is very important in the Wind Energy industry.

Degree Program

Associate of Applied Science

According to Dr. Sandy MacDonald, renewable energy (not even including hydroelectric) could cheaply supply the 48 states of the continental U.S. with 70% of their electricity demand by 2030.  Dr. McDonald, Director of the Earth System Research Laboratory at NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), based his projections on research performed by that government agency.1


This kind of energy self-sufficiency will require technicians who are trained in various areas of green technology and renewable energy, and that's what Ecotech Institute's Renewable Energy Technology college degree program is designed to do.

n this associate's degree program, which can be completed in as little as 18 months, you get a solid foundation in the fundamentals of clean renewable energy with a focus on engineering technology, and choose your own specialization that prepares you for a growing job field.

For instance, Environmental Science and Protection Technicians have a median wage (2012) of $41,240 annually with projected job growth from 2010 to 2020 of 20% to 28%.2

Program Director Tiffany Burton describes what's different about the Renewable Energy Technology program at Ecotech Institute.
