Shoreline Community College was awarded a National Science Foundation grant to enhance its Clean Energy Technology (CET) program over the next three years.
The $168,242 grant will assure that the CET program is equipped to ensure students develop a skill set that prepares them for high-skill technology jobs in the field of clean energy. Careers in the green building sector continue to see steady growth, particularly in the Greater Seattle area, which surpasses the nation in energy management and systems technology jobs.
With the National Science Foundation funding, Shoreline Community College will upgrade its Clean Energy Technology curriculum to expedite graduates’ placement into energy design and management jobs. The program will also include long-term project-based learning experiences to give students first-hand experience with authentic research and field activities that they will conduct once they are employed.
