Green jobs are growing rapidly, especially in the energy efficiency sector. The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions Green Jobs Report indicates that green jobs in New

Mexico will have excellent growth potential in addition to excellent earning potential. It is projected that green jobs will exceed employment opportunities in other employment sectors.

This program is designed to provide students with a wellrounded curriculum which includes both lecture and handson labs using relevant, up-to-date equipment.
