There is a growing need for professionals with an advanced education that considers the wind turbine as a system, including the influence of wind resource and external factors that impact wind energy project development.
Courses in the 9-credit wind energy graduate certificate can help you prepare to lead wind energy development projects, by addressing such topics as:
- the interconnected design elements of a modern horizontal axis wind turbine and how their design relates to site specific implementation
- aerodynamic theory and computational methods used for the design of state-of-the-art wind turbines
- the use of design and analysis software common across the industry
- optimization of a wind project site from performance, logistics, financial, and environmental perspectives
