Program Description Our Energy Systems Engineering Technology (Fast-Track) program seeks qualified college or university graduates gain direct admission into year two (semester three) of this three-year advanced diploma program and receive that technology advanced diploma in four semesters. The base of this college engineering program is society's changing views on energy and the environment, which are transforming the utility and construction sectors. It focuses on offering you the fundamental skills to understand energy and its uses in modern society. Because the utility sector is currently undergoing a radical shift in operating practice, it is opening the doors to groundbreaking energy projects using small-scale sources such as solar, wind, hydro, fuel cells, gas turbines and biomass to feed electricity, heat and air conditioning to our homes and businesses. The construction industry has also adopted a host of new building initiatives that are quickly increasing green awareness and the use of sustainable, integrated architecture and engineering practices for new buildings. Manufacturers have many new products that provide ways to implement advanced energy control in commercial and residential structures. The challenge and opportunity is to learn how to integrate and use all of these modern sustainable energy technologies in a manner consistent with our urban environments. Due to the changing nature of the energy industry, the program is challenging but offers a unique blend of technical, managerial and entrepreneurial skills that are highly sought after in modern energy and sustainable building companies and sectors.
