  • Associate in Applied Sciences Degree in Energy Systems Technology
    This technical degree prepares the student to enter into a cooperative training experience, often resulting in long-term employment with the training entity. This degree is designed as a pre-apprenticeship preparation.
  • Associate in Applied Science – Transfer – Plant Operations
    The AAS-T is designed for students that want to take college level courses and transfer to a baccalaureate program in renewable materials, bioresource systems engineering, biosystems engineering, or similar. Students take college level courses in mathematics, chemistry, physics, identified humanities/social science courses, biology (where indicated), and electives in EST courses to fulfill their requirements to earn an applied transfer degree.
  • EST – Electrical Systems Technology Certificate
    This is the 1st year core common to all concentrations within the Energy Systems Technology AAS degree program. All students should complete this 1st year course sequence prior to advancing to a concentration leading to the AAS degree.
