UT & NW State offering associate's degree in alt. energy technology

(Toledo)--Two places of higher learning are now one when it comes to eco-learning. The University of Toledo and Northwest State Community College in Archbold recently partnered to offer an associate's degree in the field of alternative energy technology.

The program will have two tracks. One of systems design for those interested in development and the other for systems service dealing with installation and maintenance.

The enrolled students would be admitted to both UT and Northwest State, taking classes at the Scott Park campus in south Toledo. And the way the program is set up they could easily continue their education and receive a bachelor's degree in engineering from UT.

So far fifty students have enrolled in the alternative energy program, including a majority who are solely taking classes at Northwest State. If you're interested in signing up, you can e-mail or call 419-267-1320. There may be scholarship money available as well.
