In our electronics engineering technology program, you will gain advanced knowledge in renewable and alternative energy technologies.
Renewable energy engineering technologists develop renewable energy systems, make improvements on energy efficiency, and apply science and engineering with an economic sense to create a more sustainable future for our planet.
If you have an Associate of Applied Arts and Sciences (AAS) with a technical or vocational major from a Council for Higher Education-recognized organization and are interested in renewable energy, our Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) with a concentration in renewable energy is a great fit for you. The average time frame for completing a BAAS degree is two years.
Do I Qualify for This BAAS Program?
Our Bachelor of Applied Arts and Science Renewable Energy Concentration will help you use your prior academic experience to complete your bachelor's degree.
You can enter our BAAS Program to earn your first bachelor's degree. To qualify you must have one of the following:
- Have an Associate of Applied Arts and Sciences (AAS) degree from an institution with accreditation recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) OR
- Have earned at least 30 credit hours in a career-technical related discipline from an institution with accreditation recognized by the CHEA
Scholarships and Financial Assistance
ENMU is committed to helping you finance your education. You can get information about admissions scholarships and find out why more than $22 million in financial assistance is awarded to ENMU students every year. Once you are an enrolled ENMU student, you'll have access to even more scholarships.
Online Learning Format for Renewable Energy
Our Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) concentration in Renewable Energy is designed to be completed online. You'll be completing assignments, readings, labs, tests and projects throughout the semester. Recorded and live lectures via Mediasite and Canvas will connect you with professors and other students at your convenience, rather than during a specific time. In this program, you have the option to take all classes online or a combination of online and in-person. Our program is designed with the working professional in mind.
Faculty and Advising for Renewable Energy
The applied arts and sciences faculty are committed to responsible academic advising. This means we help you schedule the right courses at the right time to help you take the next step in your professional career. Faculty members are specialists in their areas of advising and are current with requirements for admission into the programs they advise so you get the academic advice you need, when you need it.
We offer advising via phone or email for online students, and in-person appointments if you are on campus. We look forward to working with you!
Academic Help and Resources for Renewable Energy
We want to make sure you get the support you need. We offer flexible tutoring services, including the ENMU Writing Center which is available to help you improve your writing and help you clearly communicate for written, school-related projects and assignments.
We also have online databases, journal articles and eBooks accessible through the Golden Library. Since ENMU has a dedicated distance learning librarian on staff, you'll always have the help you need to take advantage of library resources.
As a Renewable Energy student, you'll find your textbooks, lab manuals and lectures will answer many of your questions. We also have teaching assistants (TAs) assigned to each course who can help you with course specific questions. For questions and concerns you can't find in the course material, you can always email or call your professor.
