Energy Systems Engineering Program Sees Students Graduate in Just Four Semesters

  1. 1. Energy Systems Engineering Program Sees Students Graduate in Just Four SemestersAre you ready to take on the challenge of learning how to integrate and use all modern sustainable energytechnologies in a manner consistent with our urban environments? Do you want to possess a breadth ofknowledge across the mechanical, electrical, electronic and automation engineering fields? If youanswered ‘yes’ to these questions, your ideal career path may be as an energy systems technician.At Centennial College, students are prepared for the industry in just four semesters by attending theEnergy Systems Engineering Technician program. The undertaking’s reputation is build off of the fact thatit offers a unique blend of technical, managerial and entrepreneurial skills that are highly sought after inthe industry. To apply, students are required to have completed at minimum an Ontario Secondary SchoolDiploma or equivalent or be 19 years of age or older. They must also have the credits for compulsoryEnglish 12C or U or skills assessment, or equivalent and Math 11M or U, or 12C or U, or skills assessment,or equivalent.A strong focus in the Energy Systems Engineering program is placed on practical labs to enhanceclassroom learning as well as applied research, and development projects to promote innovation skills.Technical curriculum is complemented by project management skills and the opportunity for students towork on state-of-the-art energy systems. These state-of-the-art energy systems mimic the ones currentlyin the industry. Specific courses within this undertaking include: Electric Circuits, Computer Aided Drafting,Physics, Chemistry Applications and Climate, Applied Statistics, Electronic Devices, Digital & PowerElectronics, Mechanics and Materials and more.Once they have completed the Energy Systems Engineering program, students are presented with theopportunity to obtain further education. That’s because graduates of the two-year offering, have theoption to enter year three of the Energy Systems Engineering Technology program.If, however, they should choose to pursue their career right away, graduates enter a field that has awidening skilled-labour shortage and quickly advancing technology in the energy sector, which arecreating huge demand for energy systems technicians. These Energy System Technicians have a numberof responsibilities. Overall, they implement energy solutions for commercial and residential buildings usingknowledge of energy systems, energy efficiency and renewable/distributed energy systems. This isachieved through heat transfer, fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics and mechanics to industriessuch as: moulding and casting, integrated circuit packaging, heat exchanger/ boiler design andmanufacture and petrochemical processing. In addition, energy systems technicians may operate powerplants of various sizes; design and maintain heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration units;and work with architectural companies to integrate energy technologies into the latest green buildings.
