Program Description The Energy Systems Engineering Technician program equips you with the fundamental skills to understand energy and its uses in modern society. This college diploma program is challenging, and offers a unique blend of technical, managerial and entrepreneurial skills that are highly sought after in modern energy and sustainable building companies. In this college engineering technician program, you'll have the opportunity to work on state-of-the-art energy systems. You'll also take part in applied research and development projects meanwhile, that promote innovation skills. The technology program's curriculum takes into account society's changing views on energy and the environment, and how they are transforming the utility and construction sectors. The utility sector is currently undergoing a radical shift in operating practice that opens doors to a range of innovative 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 homes and businesses. The construction industry, meanwhile, has adopted a host of new green building initiatives that are quickly increasing the 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 challenges and opportunities that arise in this applied science program are learning how to integrate and use all of these modern sustainable energy technologies in a manner consistent with our urban environments.
