As a society we take for granted that our electric power will run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so that we can have the food, clothing, homes, medical care, electronic devices and personal amenities we depend on.  That’s why medical facilities, financial institutions, power companies, grocery stores, and even residential homes are now using backup generators to maintain electric power in the event of a power outage.  Power generators are also used to deliver temporary electric power to oil fields, chemical plants, mining sites, construction sites, movie sets, and shipping yards.  As a result the demand for power generators has dramatically risen based on society’s significant dependence on electric power. 

Employment opportunities for EPG graduates include but are not limited to transportation and power generation technicians, technical sales consultant, industrial maintenance technician, field service technician, sales representative, or service manager.

Enrollment in the EPG program is limited and students are selected for this program on a competitive basis. Contact the Office of Admissions for the specific application requirements and deadline. Students may be sponsored by an EPG dealer or company or other companies participating in alternative energy.

EPG is a fast-paced accelerated program designed to produce highly skilled alternative energy technicians. The EPG Associate of Applied Science degree is a highly specialized technical degree which requires entering students to hold an Associate of Applied Science degree or the equivalent in a mechanical, electrical or electronic field. The EPG One Semester Certificate is designed for those who have gained fundamental mechanical, electrical, or electronic skills through other means such as industry experience or college studies and are interested in upgrading their skills or changing careers.
