Become a part of a growing industry.
Wind energy is a multidisciplinary industry which has emerged relatively quickly on our horizon and an industry in which the workforce demands have outpaced higher education's ability to provide for its needs. A 2009 demand and gap analysis by the Texas Wind Energy Institute (TWEI) based upon industry employment projections in the Department of Energy's publication "20% Wind Energy by 2030" revealed that the industry will generate 172,000 direct jobs and another 6000 indirect and/or induced jobs. Of the direct jobs, TWEI predicts that 20,900 of these jobs will require a baccalaureate degree or higher, or an estimated 1000 jobs per year for the next 20 years.
