Automation & Control Systems / Renewable Energy Technologies Program

Poverty to Prosperity (P2P) initiative has added a new program opportunity to the Career Technical Education program. The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Automation & Control Systems / Renewable Energy Technologies (ACS/RET) prepares students to work in a variety of automated electro-mechanical, product assembly, process control, product distribution, or solar thermal and Photovoltaic industries that use programmable controls, instrumentation, troubleshooting and other methodologies to accomplish system management or produce sustainable energy.

By utilizing robotic, mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic, electrical and electronic, optical and thermal devices and PV and solar thermal cells, the ACS/RET technician will gain through this program the skills to define, integrate, install, program, maintain and operate complex control and renewable solar energy systems.
