We utilize the campus as a living laboratory. We coordinate our access to mechanical rooms and other facilities for student learning with our Facilities Department.
We have conducted a job market assessment and continually update those findings with help from our Board of Advisors. Over 34,000 people are employed in some form of energy efficiency work in Connecticut. The labor market is very strong, the need for energy analysts in the commercial sector is
strong, and the Department of Labor projects a “Bright Outlook” for these jobs.
We are still very much in the infancy of our program, but our best assets include our strong professors, our dedicated students, our central location in the state, our generous funding source, and we are the only community college with a program focused on energy management in the state.
Currently, we have a robust Advisory Board consisting of around 20 members from state and local agencies that help guide the program and provide feedback to our personnel. Our faculty are respected as industry leaders. We have the major utilities represented on our Board, and a major state agency is our key-funder.
No, an internship is not a required component.
