Maybe you can't bend the wind, but you sure can harness its energy! In the wind-power generation industry, you can work as a transmission engineer - sometimes called wind-energy engineers - to design and test wind turbines and to layout the plans for wind farms.
Transmission engineers work in many other industries too, like television and broadcasting and different electrical power industries. In these fields you ensure that broadcasts transmit without interruptions or that electrical energy components generate power.
You need a bachelor's degree in engineering to qualify for an entry-level position as a transmission engineer. You must also complete an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) certification and have civil or electrical engineering experience. As a transmission engineer, you can make a starting salary of $72,000.
