ENERGYTECHNOLOGIESDEGREE-ASSOCIATEOFAPPLIEDSCIENCE
The geothermal energyprogram is designed toprovide
studentswith the skillsnecessary to enter theworkforce
in the renewable energyfield asGeothermal PowerPlant
Operators (GPO).GPOs control andmonitor geothermal
production for power plants.They regulate and
distributepower amonggenerators,monitor instruments
tomaintainvoltage, and regulate electricity current
from theplant.GPOsneed strongmechanical, electrical,
technical, and computer skills.
DEGREEOUTCOMES
Students completing thedegreewill:
• Fulfill the requirements of theAssociateofAppliedScience.
• Demonstrate competency in their specified emphasis.
EMPHASISOUTCOMES
Students completing the emphasiswill:
• Demonstrateknowledgeof theoperationof ageothermal power
plant.
• Demonstrate the ability to resolve typical technical problems
associatedwith theoperationof ageothermal powerplant.
• Demonstrate anunderstandingof environmental regulations in the
operationof ageothermal powerplant.
