Energy Systems Engineering Technology (Fast Track-PTY) will allow college or university graduates direct admission into year two (semester three) of this three-year program so they may receive their Technology advanced diploma in four semesters — with the added benefit of work experience. This offering was designed to address society’s changing views on energy and environment that are transforming the utility and construction sectors. The radical shift in operating practices has opened the doors to a range of innovative energy projects using small-scale sources (solar, wind, hydro, fuel cells, gas turbines and biomass) to feed electricity, heat and air conditioning to homes and businesses. The construction industry has adopted a host of new green building initiatives that are quickly increasing awareness and the use of sustainable, integrated architecture and engineering practices for new buildings. Manufacturers, meanwhile, have many new products that provide ways to implement advanced energy control in commercial and residential structures.

Your School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science training will prepare you to integrate and use all of these modern sustainable energy technologies in a manner consistent with our urban environments. Learning in state-of-the-art labs and lecture facilities, you will obtain a unique blend of technical, managerial and entrepreneurial skills that are highly sought-after by modern energy and sustainable building companies. The Energy Systems Engineering Technology (Fast Track-PTY) offering will cover areas such as renewable energy such as wind, solar and geothermal; conventional energy such as hydro, gas turbine and nuclear; and building automation and smart grids.
