The State University of New York (SUNY) Oneonta/Otsego Northern Catskill, Board of Cooperative Educational Services (ONC BOCES) Offshore Wind Energy Pipeline Program is designed to provide high school students and SUNY Oneonta students with a clear pathway to careers in offshore wind energy, other renewable energies, and ancillary areas such as battery storage. The pipeline will start in the ONC BOCES Mechatronics and the New Visions Engineering programs, where students will learn about wind energy, and renewable energy within classes and advance their learning through meetings with industry experts and trips to wind energy installations, manufacturers, and other related industries. BOCES students will also have the opportunity to pursue microcredentials in wind technology and renewable energy and engage in lab work in the Sustainable Energy Demonstration Lab (SEDL). The SEDL will support research projects in offshore wind energy and renewable energies. SUNY Oneonta students can pursue microcredentials and the 3+2 engineering program in Applied Physics with a focus on sustainable energy. The SEDL will include industry fellows that act in an advisory capacity for the lab, faculty, teachers, and students.
