|The Energy Systems Engineering Technology (Fast-Track) program allows qualified college or university graduates direct admission into Year 2 (Semester 3) of this three-year program to receive a Technology advanced diploma in four semesters. Forming the base of this college engineering program will be society’s changing views on energy and the environment, which are transforming the utility and construction sectors. As such, it will focus on offering you the fundamental skills to understand energy and its uses in modern society.
A radical shift in operating practice in the utility sector is currently opening the doors to ground-breaking energy projects using small-scale sources, such as solar, wind, hydro, fuel cells, geo-thermal and biomass energy to produce electrical and thermal energy. The construction industry has also adopted a host of new building initiatives that are quickly increasing green awareness, and the use of sustainable engineering practices for various sectors. The challenge and opportunity will be to learn how to integrate and use all of these modern sustainable energy technologies in a manner consistent with the market demands. Due to the energy industry’s changing nature, this program will be challenging but will result in a unique blend of technical, managerial and entrepreneurial skills that are highly sought after in modern energy and sustainable building companies and sectors.
