5 days ago
Zach Allen is a project manager for the National Energy Center of Excellence at Bismarck State College. The NECE offers 12 different energy degree programs plus non-credit programs for industry training and apprenticeships.
The NECE’s roots date back to the 1970’s when they recognized a need for specialized training due to the growing energy sector in the state. The Power Plant Technology program began in 1976 and through the years has expanded to include 11 other programs including Nuclear Power Technology.
It’s often said energy development and innovation go hand in hand, and it’s the way BSC has integrated these programs that makes them cutting edge. In this podcast, Allen will describe how the NECE has applied the use of remote technology to education allowing students personalized learning opportunities from wherever they are no matter the time of day. He’ll also explain how collaboration, project based learning, self-advocacy, communication and other innovative skills and ideas are put to work in the program.
