Students in the Wind Energy Technology Program at Mesalands Community College receive real-world experience. The opportunity to climb the College’s General Electric 1.5-megawatt ESS wind turbine is invaluable, and it provides students with vital skills that employers are seeking.

This hands-on practice prepares students for on-the-job challenges they will face when they enter the workforce.
As the need for cleaner and more efficient energy grows, so will the need for well-trained wind turbine techicians. A typical beginning salary for a technician with a degree (A.A.S) can be $45,000 or more.
