The Winds of Change
New careers in wind energy are on the horizon, and FSC is preparing students for the next wave of opportunities.
Since its founding in 1912, Farmingdale State College has been known for its career-launching degree programs, cutting-edge technology, and innovative hands-on instruction. FSC continues these traditions with the introduction of new programs in Wind Energy Technology, thanks to the launch of New York’s Offshore Wind Training Institute (OWTI).
The State University of New York (SUNY) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) launched OWTI to train 2,500 workers as part of the largest public investment in offshore wind workforce development by any state in the U.S.
Each of Farmingdale’s new wind technology programs is geared toward a specific audience — graduating high school seniors, current college students, and seasoned professionals — to improve awareness of career opportunities and to help supply the skilled workforce necessary to advance renewable energy infrastructure off the shores of Long Island and across the nation.
