About the program
The Energy Systems Engineering Technician (Fast-Track) program at Centennial College will equip the students with with the essential skills to understand various energy resources and their uses in modern society. Because society’s changing views on energy and environment are transforming the utility and construction sectors, the courses in this college engineering program will address the challenges and opportunities of integrating and using modern sustainable energy technologies in a manner consistent with our urban environments. As such, project management skills aligned with these urban environments will complement a technical curriculum.
The utility sector is currently undergoing a radical shift in operating practice that opens the door to a range of innovative energy projects using small-scale sources, such as solar, wind, hydro, fuel cells, geo-thermal 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. Manufacturers also have many new products that provide ways to implement advanced energy control in commercial and residential structures. Through this program, you’ll learn how to be an energy leader in this changing field.
