ENERGY SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY
Program Options
Intermediate Technical Certificate
The Energy Systems Technology Program (EST) provides the
“core” electronics curriculum that makes up the first year of a
two year Associate Degree in one of three areas in the ESTEC
program offered at Idaho State University (ISU). Students
that complete the one year technical certificate are prepared to
transfer to ISU to complete an associate degree.
A recent COMPASS algebra score no older than two years and
greater than 44 needs to be sent to ISU when applying to ISU’s
ESTEC program in the ISU College of Technology.
ESTEC offers a unique approach to educating students by
providing the specific knowledge and skills needed in electrical
generation. The skills requirements have been developed in
partnership with energy utilities and vendors to assure that
program graduates enter the workforce with the precise skills
required by industry. Students learn through traditional
classroom experience as well as through extensive laboratory
exercises. Electrical generation technologies addressed include
nuclear, coal, gas, and renewable technologies such as wind,
solar thermal energy, solar photovoltaic, geothermal, biomass,
and hydro.
ESTEC is a public/private partnership between Idaho State
University, Idaho National Laboratory, and Partners for
Prosperity. Curriculum and laboratory resources were developed
with external funding from the US Department of Labor and the
National Science Foundation. Employers include public utilities,
independent energy generation companies, renewable energy
producers, energy service companies, power generation
equipment manufacturers, installers and constructors. The
courses listed in the program will be taught in sequential blocks
of instruction. Successful completion of a course is required
before the student can progress in the program.
Intended Learning Outcomes
• Prepare students to transfer to ISU to complete an associate
degree in the ESTEC program where they will be prepared for
employment as Engineering Technicians meeting the skills and
competencies required by the existing and growing electrical
generation sector.
Program Costs
In addition to the semester registration fees, an ESTEC student
can expect to spend approximately $600 on books and hand tools
for the one-year program.

MACHINE TOOL TECHNOLOGY
Intended Learning Outcomes:
• Machinists set up and operate a variety of computer-controlled
and mechanically-controlled machine tools to produce precision
metal parts, instruments, and tools.
• Work from blueprints, sketches or computer-aided design
(CAD), and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) files
• Turn, mill, drill, shape, and grind machine parts to
specifications.
• Graduates will exhibit desirable work habits, ideals, and
attitudes essential to successful job performance.
• Graduates will communicate effectively with industry peers in
the vernacular of professional tradespersons.
Program Costs
In addition to class and lab fees, students can expect to spend
approximately $2,000 on required tools and books for the
program. Students will need to have the majority of tools
purchased prior to the first lab class but should check with
instructors before purchasing tools and books, more information
will be given at the Machine Tool Orientation.
