Texas Tech has a long history of wind-related research and education. Texas is ranked
highest in the U.S. for installed wind power capacity and TTU's Lubbock campus is
in the Great Plains wind corridor region making this part of Texas ideal for a wide
variety of opportunities in wind energy.
Since wind energy is a multidisciplinary industry, the wind energy course selection
strongly reflects that mission. The BSWE's numerous course options prepare students
for professional positions in policy, business, management, agriculture, architecture,
or wind power industries. Additionally, the BSWE offers online and classroom-based
courses which create flexibility for students.
