I have nothing but positive things to say about this program. I received great instruction and education from the two professors who teach the program.Mitchell J. Kellogg, Class of 2018, Girard Heating and Air Conditioning, Westfield
The Energy Systems Program is unique in the sense that it is the only such program offered on the East Coast. An up-to-date, extensive laboratory facility has been created which utilizes the latest in equipment and control devices.
Seniors who complete all course requirements are awarded the Associate in Science degree. They are given the opportunity to earn additional awards by taking the Oil Burner Technician and Stationary Fireman's license examinations as directed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Safety, and the EPA Technician Certification. The Energy Systems graduate is well prepared to enter an industry that offers career positions as manufacturers' representatives, service engineers, sales engineers, estimators, independent businessmen, lab technicians, and power plant operators.
Minimum Grade Requirement: Students must achieve a "D" as the minimum passing grade in all 'ENGY' series technical courses. A student must have earned a minimum QPA of 2.0 for graduation.
