Wind Energy Technology
Degree Program

Associate of Applied Science

Wind Energy Technology graduates from Ecotech Institute are tapping into more than just a recent trend. Since 2003, the global market for wind power has had a nearly ten-fold increase—from $7.5 billion to over $73 billion. By 2022, wind power installations should grow to $124.7 billion, more than doubling the number of skilled workers from current estimates.1

A wind energy career starts at Ecotech Institute

Ecotech Institute's two-year associate's degree program Wind Energy Technology program is designed to prepare students for careers in wind power generation and transmission while equipping them with a foundation in the broader field of renewable energy.

My biggest influence (in deciding to attend Ecotech Institute) was how much money that you can make in green careers and how good I can feel about it at the same time."
--Brandon Barnes, Ecotech Institute graduate and Air Force veteran

Ecotech Institute's curriculum features small class sizes and hands-on labs with modern, real-world, industry lab equipment taught by instructors who balance academic experience with industry work experience. Specialized equipment, such as the 20-ton Eichoff gearbox (provided by Winergy, a subsidiary of Siemens) allows students to practice in hands-on labs—including borescope inspections, bolt fastening and gearbox troubleshooting.

Ecotech Institute wind graduates are part of something bigger

When NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, celebrated the commissioning of its 10,000th megawatt (MW) of wind energy, two Ecotech Institute graduates, Larry Smith and Chris Allgood, were there and were interviewed in this short video. Altogether, NextEra Energy Resources' North American wind energy fleet is capable of generating enough electricity to power a city the size of Chicago.
