      4 June 2015

      Laney ECTMeet Jasmine Shepard, an Energy Analyst at the Association for Energy Affordability (AEA), a non-profit specializing in conducting energy audits and energy analysis of multifamily buildings, evaluating energy savings, and designing energy upgrades.

      Jasmine really got into the energy field with the Environmental Control Technology Program (ECT) at Laney College. “I learned a lot of things in engineering school but I learned how to do so much more at Laney, Jasmine said.

      “Going to Laney helped me love learning again. I greatly enjoyed my time as a student and lab assistant in the ECT department.  Laney really showed me how important community colleges are for such diverse groups, college graduates really have a lot to gain by furthering their education,” she says.
