"If this area is to fully benefit from the opportunities green energy investments will bring, it is essential that we have a skilled workforce."
The college has more than 150 courses related to renewables at a variety of levels, from NVQ Level 2 to honours degrees.
Dr McMahon said: "The college works closely with local companies to ensure the courses we provide are relevant and equip students with the skills they need to work effectively.
"In addition to working with younger students and those seeking employment, we also offer the retraining of mature workers.
"We encourage companies to tell us their requirements, we can then shape our provision around those needs."
The education category is one of ten accolades being presented at the awards, run by Footprint Renewables.
Winners will be announced on Friday, March 1, at The Deep.
