Program Description The Energy Systems Engineering Technician (Fast-Track) program is for qualified college or university graduates who wish to gain direct admission into year two (semester three) of this two-year college diploma program and receive their Technician diploma in two semesters. Because society's changing views on energy and environment are transforming the utility and construction sectors, the courses in this college engineering program address the challenges and opportunities of integrating and using all modern sustainable energy technologies in a manner consistent with our urban environments. As such, a technical curriculum is complemented by project management skills consistent with our urban environment. 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 our homes and businesses. The construction industry, meanwhile, 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 have many new products that provide ways to implement advanced energy control in commercial and residential structures. Through this program, you learn how to be an energy leader in this changing field.
