Program Overview

The University of Florida’s Graduate Certificate in Wind Turbines is offered through the College of Engineering, and under the university’s EDGE Department. The Wind Turbine Certificate is designed to prepare students to enter careers related to wind turbine technologies. This program’s distance learning delivery was designed with working students and engineering professionals in mind who wouldn’t normally have the time to pursue a traditional certificate on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments.

This program’s required coursework consists of three courses, or nine credits. The curriculum takes approximately one year to complete; students can begin the coursework during any semester. Students have the ability to hand select their three courses from a longer list, based on their personal interests and professional goals. Some of the topics that courses span include Energy Conversion, Special Topics in Aerospace Engineering, Advanced Structural Composites, Special Topics in Mechanical Engineering, and Classical and Statistical Thermodynamics. Through these various courses, students have the opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of energy conversion, unusual energy environments, thermionic and thermoelectrical conversion, airfoil design, stress analysis, performance metrics, and much more. Once students have completed the coursework for the Wind Turbine Certificate, they may possess all of the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in this field.
