Congrats on pursuing a career that will probably be both lucrative and personally rewarding.

The Oregon Institute of Technology offers a degree in Renewable Energy Engineering.

University of Montana also has a very interesting sounding 2-year program that provides an Associate of Applied Science degree in Energy Technology.

You can find lots more programs listed by the U.S. Department of Energy – Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) division, but you may need to Google some of the programs directly as a number of links seem out of date.

Hope this helps!

  1. Many many careers can deal with renewable energy..

    Try civil, mechanical, electrical or chemical engineering.

    You could also become an envirmental consultant, but in terms of developing the tech, engenering is probably the best bet!

    Good Luck! maybe some day you’ll be in the newspaper for developing some new energy source!
