Western Texas Community College (WTC) says it is offering an Associate of Science degree that could prepare students to earn their undergraduate degree in wind energy from Texas Tech University.
Ed Ardizoni, a curriculum specialist with a background in renewable energy, is leading the WTC wind energy program.
‘This is an exciting opportunity to provide an educational path for students into a maturing industry," he says. "Most colleges provide only a single graduate-level course as an overlay onto a traditional degree program such as electrical or mechanical engineering. Our program provides more information on wind energy extraction and can be a major or a minor degree topic for the student to apply to their life's professional pursuits."
Currently, Texas Tech University offers a wind energy undergraduate degree that could lead to various employment opportunities in the wind industry.
