Associate of Applied Science in Alternative Energy Technology – Wind Turbine

Wind turbine power is expected to be one of the fastest-growing alternative energy sources. As it grows, the industry will need qualified people to service the technology that is involved. In order to meet that demand and prepare Northeast Ohio to be a major player in this burgeoning field, LCCC is offering Ohio’s first associate degree program in Wind Turbine technology.

Building on the short-term and one-year certificate programs, this coursework trains students to become wind turbine installation and maintenance professionals. It covers an overview of alternative energy sources, with specialized training in electronics, electronic controls, mechanical systems and more. The program focuses on residential-sized wind turbines and includes training on utility-scale turbines. Coursework encompasses a wide range of electrical, mechanical and computer skills required to successfully compete in the job market. Upon graduation, you can expect to work in a range of analysis, installation and maintenance assignments completing design, testing, R&D, service, maintenance and installation work.
