Energy Production and Distribution Technologies

Help power the future! You’ll learn about complex mechanical/electrical systems, including megawatt windmills, steam driven turbines and solar fields that turn sunlight into electricity.

Plus, students can assemble, disassemble and troubleshoot parts and systems of a real 2.5-megawatt wind turbine. The four generators, hub, gear box, nacelle and other parts were donated by Clipper Windpower, Cedar Rapids, and give students valuable hands-on experience with these major components. 

Students in this program may be eligible to have half their tuition paid for by the Kibbie Grant. Click here for more details.
