ENERGYTECHNOLOGIESDEGREE-ASSOCIATEOFAPPLIEDSCIENCE
The solar energyprogram is designed toprovide
studentswith the skillsnecessary to enter theworkforce
in the renewable energyfield as technicians in solar
photovoltaic and thermal installations.The solar energy
technician completes accurate site assessment and
energydemand analysis fromwhich a solar energy
systemwill bedesigned and installed.Theprogram
prepares students to sit for industry-recognized
certifications required to enter theworkforce. Solar
energy techniciansneed strong 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 photovoltaic and solar
thermal system.
• Demonstrate the ability to solve technical problems associatedwith
thephotovoltaic and solar thermal installations.
• Demonstrate anunderstandingof environmental regulations in the
installationof photovoltaic and solar thermal systems.
