A major challenge facing utilities nationwide is an aging workforce, coupled with a shallow pool of competent workers. The ability to effectively manage a public utility and provide high-quality products and services in tomorrow's marketplace requires innovative, professional and technical leaders who understand utility management principles and the highly technical skills required.
To address this challenge, the RWA, Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) and Gateway Community College (GCC) collaborated to develop a unique Public Utility Management degree program, the first of its kind in the country. Successful graduates of the Associate in Science program at GCC are eligible to transfer to a four-year Bachelor of Science degree program at SCSU, or students can enter the four-year program at SCSU right out of high school.
The program is designed to align with career tracks in water, wastewater, gas and electric utility management. Coursework and internships will enable students to gain theoretical and practical hands-on knowledge important for working in public utilities. Through traditional brick and mortar learning, or online studies, students will be able to plan, organize, manage and direct virtually all aspects of utility management. This solid management base, coupled with an industry-specific concentration, will enable graduates to fill dynamic managerial roles in public utilities.
