Student Learning Outcomes

See Learning Outcomes

Program Information

  • Students develop practical skills associated with the operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of mechanical systems (hydraulics, pneumatics, mechanisms, and wind power devices).
  • EGR 162, EGR 182 and many marine and wind industry careers require good physical health and the ability to swim and/or climb. Students with issues in these areas should discuss them with the program coordinator before enrollment.

After BCC

  • Graduates work as turbine and foundation installers and operation and maintenance (O&M) technicians in the land-based or offshore wind industry or in a variety of marine trades professions at the technical level.
