Renewable Energy Certificate

The Renewable Energy Certificate at Clemson University consists of three classes in the areas of solar power, wind power, and renewable energy penetration.

This certificate program requires a basic knowledge of DC and AC circuit theory including Kirchhoff’s Laws, complex frequency, and Laplace transforms. Individuals without a basic knowledge of DC and AC circuit theory, should complete the appropriate coursework (e.g., ECE 3070 – Basic Electrical Engineering or ECE 2020 – Electric Circuits I and ECE 2620 – Electric Circuits II).

Instructions on how to apply for the Renewable Energy Certificate

Please note: This application is for students who wish to enroll in the certificate programs, but do not wish to pursue a degree and are not currently enrolled at another institution.

“The Clemson University EPCE / EE Program has been a very positive experience – you can apply online, get accepted online, and start registering for classes. The fact that there were online engineering courses offered by an institution the caliber of Clemson University clinched the deal for me.”
