Get a Solid Foundation in the Energy Systems Engineering Technician Field

  1. 1. Get a Solid Foundation in the Energy Systems Engineering Technician Field at Centennial CollegeProfessionals who posses a wide range of knowledge across mechanical, electrical,electronic and automation engineering fields can find jobs as energy systemsengineering technicians. In the utility sector innovative energy projects are usingsmall-scale sources such as solar, wind, hydro, fuel cells, gas turbines and biomassto feed electricity, heat and air conditioning to our homes and businesses.Meanwhile, the construction industry has adopted a host of new green buildinginitiatives that are quickly increasing awareness and the use of sustainable,integrated architecture and engineering practices for new buildings. Energy SystemsEngineering Technicians are responsible for taking on the challenge of integratingand using these modern sustainable energy technologies in a manner consistent withour urban environments.Through the Energy Systems Engineering program at Centennial College,students learn fundamental skills to understand energy and its uses in modernsociety. Once students complete the Energy Systems Engineering Technicianprogram, they may enter year three of the Energy Systems Engineering Technologyprogram to complete a further credential.The two-year program is challenging, but offers a unique blend of technical,managerial and entrepreneurial skills that are highly sought after in modern energyand sustainable building companies. Students learn all about: implementing energysolutions for commercial and residential buildings using knowledge of energysystems, energy efficiency and renewable/distributed energy systems; operatingpower plants of various sizes; designing and maintaining heating, ventilating, airconditioning and refrigeration units; and working with architectural companies tointegrate energy technologies into the latest green buildings.The Energy Systems Engineering Technician program places a strong focus onpractical labs with the opportunity for students to work on state-of-the-art energysystems. Applied research and development projects promote students’ innovationskills while technician curriculum is complemented by project management skills.Courses covered in the Energy Systems Technician undertaking, include: Physics,Electric Circuits, Applied Statistics, Chemistry Application and Climate, Boilers andAuxiliaries, Mechanics and Materials, Wind and Solar Energy and many others.In order to apply, student must have completed at minimum an Ontario SecondarySchool Diploma or equivalent or be 19 years of age or older. They must also havethe credits for compulsory English 12C or U or skills assessment, or equivalent andMath 11M or U, or 12C or U, or skills assessment, or equivalent.Successful energy systems technicians enter a field in which a widening skilled-labour shortage and quickly advancing technology in the energy sector are creatinghuge demand for technicians who possess a breadth of knowledge. In their variedpositions, energy systems technicians work with industries that include moulding andcasting, integrated circuit packaging, heat exchanger/ boiler design and manufactureand petrochemical processing.
