Wind Energy Engineering – Graduate Certificate

UMass Lowell


This graduate certificate is open to applicants with a BS in Mechanical Engineering or a related field, such as Materials Science or Physics, who have an interest in modern wind turbines, including their aerodynamics, what materials go into their construction, and how they are integrated into our electrical system.

The one required course, Wind Energy Fundamentals, introduces the student to multiple topics concerning winch energy and wind turbines. The student can then pursue one or more of these topics in greater depth through the available electives. Upon completion, the student will be well -prepared either to continue graduate studies in wind energy engineering, or to work in the growing wind energy industry.
