Power engineering is a career choice with many different options for employment and great potential for career advancement. If you are looking for a rewarding career working with industrial equipment and machinery, we can help you get there. Please Note: The power engineering technology diploma is a competitive entry program. Meeting minimum published admission averages does not guarantee admission to the program.

Power engineers supervise, operate and maintain machinery and boilers that provide power, heat, refrigeration and other utility services to industrial and commercial facilities. They are responsible for the safe and efficient operation and maintenance of industrial equipment such as boilers, steam and gas turbines, generators, gas and diesel internal combustion engines, pumps, condensers, compressors, pressure vessels and related controls. In large industrial or building complexes, they may also be responsible for heating, air-conditioning, ventilation, refrigeration, fire systems and building control systems.
