GREEN NEWS: TECHNOLOGY, BUSINESS & SOCIAL TRENDS TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY

 

The BCC Center for Sustainability and Alternative Energy, under a NASA grant, has developed curricula for energy efficiency and alternative/sustainable energy. These curricula support and expand Burlington County College’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) program offerings within green technologies. The new courses support Associate Degree Programs in:

 
  • Energy Management
  • Alternative Energy Technologies
  • Sustainable Energy Studies
 
An Associate Degree Program in Environmental Sustainability, as well as Career Certificate programs, is also planned.
 

Community colleges have been recognized as playing a vital role in providing students with learning opportunities in “green” technologies including renewable energy technology and energy efficiency. Author Mindy Feldbaun in the publication, Going Green: The Vital Role of Community Colleges in Building a Sustainable Future and a Green Workforce (2009) describes community colleges as “the perfect gateway to good green jobs” and well suited to prepare “workers with the skills and competencies needed for green industries.”
