Cape Cod Community College is partnering with Vineyard Wind, developer of the nation’s first large-scale offshore wind project, to launch a non-credit College course that will address global and state trends, local career and supply chain opportunities, and technology basics related to offshore wind. The course, “Offshore Wind 101: Energy, Climate and Jobs,” is offered for high school students at their schools by request, and for the general public at the College’s Center for Corporate and Professional Education (CCAPE) in Hyannis.
Cape Cod Community College also offers two 3-credit online courses relating to renewable wind energy: "Renewable Energy, Climate, & Careers" (ENV 165) and "Introduction to Wind Energy" (ENV177).
Course Descriptions for ENV165 and ENV177:
ENV165: Renewable Energy Climate and Careers--The implications of the energy enterprise, from global to individual perspectives, are explored by investigating basic energy/electricity concepts and the effects of technologies, policies, markets, and behaviors on the Earth's climate system, the environment, and national and personal security. First principles and practical potentials of renewable energy sources and low-carbon technologies are examined, as are career pathways supporting sustainable energy solutions. Case studies and experiments reinforce basic concepts, develop analytical skills, and provide system-level understanding. Prerequisite: MAT020 or MAT025 and ENL108 or ESL201 or satisfactory basic skills assessment scores / 3 credits. Satisfies a Natural or Physical Science general education requirement. Offered: Fall
ENV177: Introduction to Wind Energy--This course provides an in-depth introduction to wind power as a sustainable form of energy. It examines the history, current applications, and future of wind power. Students gain a basic understanding of the fundamental science behind harnessing useable energy from the wind. The course looks at the process for siting, developing, constructing, operating, and maintaining wind energy projects of different scales – from home and small commercial to municipal and utility scale.
