Energy & Power

Program Overview

Energy & Power plays a huge role in our local economy! You’ll use hands-on projects as you learn power generation and distribution, use of energy, and how to move energy innovation forward.

You’ll explore mechanical, heat, chemical, and electromagnetic energy. Learn how to design and construct systems using alternative energies, motor control circuits, and pipeline systems. You will also work with renewable and non-renewable energy generation, transformers, and off-grid systems to understand how different types of energy are captured. Couldn’t get more hands-on than that!

“I like the environment here. It feels like actual work experience.” – Drew C.
