About the Energy Utility Technology Certificate

This concentration program provides students with a core set of skills and competencies required by the energy industry. Coursework covers technical math, safety, AC and DC circuits and controls, the business side of the energy industry, operations and technology. Workplace readiness skills are integrated into the curriculum including critical thinking, problem solving, time management and teamwork. Hands-on training is provided through a nine-week field practicum (one day per week/eight hours per day) where students apply theoretical classroom knowledge in a real-world environment. Students are required to complete experiments with lab reports, special projects and a portfolio illustrating key learning outcomes.

At the present time, National Grid can accommodate the first 20 students accepted into the program for its practicum. All other students will be assigned an alternate practicum.

This program is offered as a full-time, daytime program, starting in the fall semester. Some courses can be taken in the evening. Full-time students can complete the certificate in as little as two semesters. All credits earned for the certificate will apply towards the Engineering Systems Technology A.S. degree.
