O.E.C., Sustainable Energy

Occupational Endorsement

Providing education and training in energy efficiency and renewable energy, the sustainable energy occupational endorsement addresses many of the energy issues that influence Alaska communities and provides the basic academic preparation for entry-level sustainable energy careers. It also serves as a steppingstone into science- and engineering-related certificate, associate or bachelor’s programs.

The program is structured as 6 credits of foundation knowledge and a minimum of 6 credit electives that allow students (in consultation with their advisor) to specialize in specific areas of sustainable energy. Some examples of how the electives can be formed into specific areas of study follow. Applicants must be 16 years old to be admitted.
