From this September students who enrol on the Level 2 Diploma in Electrical & Electronic Engineering course will tackle new units covering subjects such as wind and solar energy.
This is in addition to existing units that focus on welding, fabrication and more.
Lecturer Stephen Row said: “It is important our courses reflect the world our students live in, and at the moment it’s one where people are desperately trying to reduce their carbon footprint.
“There is now a clear desire to use more renewable sources of energy as a result, which should open up thousands of new jobs for those qualified to work in the relevant industries.
“MidKent College is dedicated to teaching its students the job skills employers today are looking for, so the decision to introduce these new units was an easy one to make.”
The Diploma in Electrical & Electronic Engineering is a practical, work-related course that also helps students qualify for work in electronic production and the technical services field.
Other units include working safely in engineering, mathematics for technicians, operation of mechanical systems and more.
