Is there a future in an Industrial Technology career?

Strong winds are blowing change into the energy industry, creating new careers. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, wind power is the fastest growing energy source in the country. As the industry expands, so does the need for technicians to install, operate, and maintain wind turbines. Wind turbine technicians build or service individual turbines, help with the construction of entire wind farms, or work indoors at factories that manufacture wind turbines. These technicians use a wide range of mechanical and electrical skills.

Why choose a career in Industrial Technology?

Be a part of the nation's efforts to improve the performance, lower the cost, and accelerate the deployment of wind power technology. Great use of our nation's renewable resources for electric power generation will help stabilize energy costs, enhance energy security, and improve our environment. When there's wind, there's energy. Locally there are a growing number of wind farms capturing the wind for electrical power and making it available to homeowners and businesses. While it's nature that provides the wind, it's humans that install and maintain the turbines.
