Shoreline’s Clean Energy Technology (CET) program continues to gain recognition on both the local and national levels as a leader in clean energy and high-performance building sciences education.

Two Shoreline CET students, Alisha Turpin and Elizabeth Daly, were both recently awarded the Harry Clayton Sutch scholarship by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

The students each received a scholarship in the amount of $2,000 from the organization, which is dedicated to the advancement of the arts and sciences of practices related to the reduction of building energy use.

“It’s thrilling that our students are being recognized for their excellence and supported as future leaders of the industry in this way,” said CET Program Director, Louise Petruzzella. 

Shoreline’s CET program itself was also recently recognized, this time by the National Science Foundation (NSF), for the successful completion of a MentorLinks grant. MentorLinks is a program designed to help colleges strengthen technician programs in STEM fields through mentoring, professional development opportunities, and technical assistance.

The NSF is not the only national organization recognizing Shoreline’s CET program. Solar Energy International (SEI), a nonprofit educational organization that provides industry-leading technical training and expertise in renewable energy, is holding it’s 2017 incumbent worker training session on Shoreline’s campus this June.

“SEI is the gold standard for renewable energy education and training,” said Petruzzella. “We’re so pleased to partner with them to host this three-day training event that will bring industry professionals from across the region to our campus and expose them to all our program has to offer.”
