This 100% online program provides students and professionals the opportunity to earn recognized academic and industry credentials in the renewable energy industry by covering the technical, policy and financial aspects of renewable energy project development. The interdisciplinary approach allows individuals to gain a comprehensive understanding of renewables and be able to better incorporate their professional experience and expertise in the industry.

The program has rolling admissions so you can enroll anytime. Classes are taken during spring and fall semesters, so check NCSU’s academic calendar. Individuals who already have a bachelor’s or master’s degree and want to update their skills, or those who want to broaden their knowledge in the field may also be interested in the Certificate Program.
