NJIT, EDA to offer 2-day offshore wind bootcamp (June 20-21) for potential employees

New Jersey Institute of Technology and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority are offering a two-day offshore wind training bootcamp for university students and engineers who are interested in starting a career in the offshore wind industry to gain initial knowledge and understanding.

The bootcamp will be held June 20-21 at the Agile Strategy Lab on the campus of NJIT.

The bootcamp, which is open to any university students, practicing engineers or researchers, aims to cover the general aspects of offshore wind farms. The registration fee is $10.

There are no prerequisite course requirements. Participants are expected to have an educational background in college-level or advanced-placement level engineering or physical sciences.

The bootcamp training will issue a certificate of completion with 14 hours of professional development hours. The bootcamp is equivalent to a 1-credit course.

If a participant passes the examination (multiple-choice questions) at the end of the bootcamp, this course can constitute towards a graduate certificate in the offshore wind education program under planning at NJIT.
