Training and education for the green economy

The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system offers more than 350 programs that provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to work in today’s growing green economy. Some are existing programs, ranging from chemistry to carpentry, that have been redesigned to include green skills. Others are programs that were created specifically to prepare workers for jobs in green fields such as renewable energy production, energy-efficient construction, conservation and green manufacturing.
