Miles Community College has collaborated with The University of Montana College of Technology in Missoula to offer an online degree in Energy Technology. The Energy Technology Program introduces students to the full suite of energy technologies—traditional, emerging, renewable, and alternative—and prepares them for careers in the energy industry. Graduates of the program are best described as general practitioners who possess a wide variety of essential skills: a specialized knowledge of the design, application, installation, operation, and maintenance of diverse energy technologies and systems, including troubleshooting, sales, management, regulatory compliance, site identification, economic assessment, efficiency and conservation assessment, storage and distribution, research and development, and project management. These specialized skills are bolstered by a broad education in scientific and mathematical fundamentals, critical and analytical thinking, adaptive problem solving and management skills, and an understanding of the economic, social, and environmental implications of different energy technologies.

Students interested in pursuing this degree must contact the Energy Technology Academic Advisor at Miles Community College for information and to assure proper course sequencing.
