Abstract

Our vision at Texas Tech University is to develop work force through education and training that can provide a steady stream of personnel for the rapidly growing wind energy industry. Our objectives are to establish interdisciplinary curricula at all levels of higher education which can educate and train people to work in the wind energy industry including design and construction, maintenance, business, finance, supervision, management, policy making, environmental impact, as well as research and development. The nature and breadth of the wind energy industry demands that the degree programs be interdisciplinary with flexibility to provide emphasis in various areas. Two degree programs, bachelor and doctoral degree curricula are presented in the paper.
