Bedford Campus and Lowell Campus - Day and Evening (This program is open only to graduates of the Energy Utility Technology Certificate Program.)

Program Description:

The Energy Utility Technology Associate in Science, Liberal Studies degree program provides students accepted in, or who have completed, the Energy Utility Technology (EUT) Certificate program with pathways to further education. In order to enroll in this program, students will be required to either have completed, or be accepted into and taking courses in, the EUT Certificate program. The degree program will consist of (in addition to courses in the EUT Certificate program) general education courses and five electives. The general education courses enhance the knowledge gained in other courses. The elective courses may be used to focus the student toward specific career areas related to the energy utility industry, such as engineering or business management.

Career and Transfer Outlook:

Job opportunities nationwide include positions as maintenance and repair workers, electrical power-line installers and repairers, first-line supervisors and managers, as well as overhead, underground and substation experts.

Helpful Hints:

The EUT degree program is intended only for students who are accepted in, or have completed, the EUT Certificate program, or have substantial work experience in the energy utility industry. Students should work carefully with their academic adviser to plan courses and ensure they are choosing electives that forward their career plans and/or facilitate transfer to a baccalaureate program.
