New Course Offering: Geothermal Energy

Spring 2010, Adjunct Professor Richard Bayless will be leading a new three credit, special topics course entitled Introduction to Geothermal Energy. The course will be delivered through the energy technology program and provides students with an introduction to sources of geothermal energy including the technologies used to generate electricity and provide space heating. After attending an October Geothermal Resources conference in Reno, Professor Bayless reports "The geothermal field is undergoing explosive growth". Pre-requisite knowledge for the course includes basic knowledge in the fields of science and algebra. The course fulfills three credits of the energy-related elective requirement for students pursuing the A.A.S. degree in Energy Technology.
