Wind Energy Technician

Associate of Applied Science Degree

Program Description

Cherokee Campus

The number of wind turbines in Iowa and in the United States continues to increase, as does the need for skilled workers who are able to install, maintain, service, and operate them. The Wind Energy Technician program encompasses the skill sets needed as a technician and/or operator, depending on the career path students choose. A number of certificate and diploma options will be available, allowing students to customize their interests and training accordingly.

Wind is the fastest growing energy source in the United States. In 2007, wind energy production increased by 21 percent, and a recent report by the U.S. Department of Energy suggests that it could contribute 20 percent of the nations electricity by 2030. Although BLS does not collect data specifically on wind energy employment, the American Solar Energy Society estimates that in 2006 there were 16,000 jobs in wind turbine construction and maintenance.
