The Energy Systems program teaches students the fundamentals of electricity, magnetism, photovoltaic electrical systems, and wind generation. This program emphasize techniques to harness the earth’s renewable energy sources. Students study energy related applications, design, installation, and renewable energy, they learn residential and commercial wiring, programming controls and electrical motors. Students also learn to apply the National Electrical Code (NEC) for safe and reliable electrical installations. Solar street lighting, photovoltaic electrical systems, wind turbine fabrication and installation, and collection of wind resources will also be covered in addition to stand-alone, grid-tied, and net-metering systems.

Students explore science, mathematics, technology, and engineering while they study the transformation of mechanical energy to electrical energy. Moreover, the design and construction of photovoltaic, wind, and solar systems will enable students to supplement existing energy needs at home, the communities, and throughout the Navajo Nation. This degree program offers hands-on training that will not only prepare students to compete for job opportunities in the traditional construction and service-related industries, but also meet the challenge for the growing demand in the development of eco-friendly renewable energy systems.
