About the program
This Energy Systems Engineering Technician program at Centennial College is challenging and will result in a unique blend of technical, managerial and entrepreneurial skills that are highly sought after in modern energy and sustainable building companies. During your studies, you’ll have the opportunity to work on state-of-the-art energy systems and participate in applied research and development projects that will promote innovation skills.
The technology program’s curriculum will take into account society’s changing views on energy and the environment, and how they’re transforming the utility and construction sectors.
The utility sector, for example, is currently undergoing a radical shift in operating practice that opens the door to a range of innovative energy projects using small-scale sources — 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 use of sustainable and integrated architecture and engineering practices for new buildings. Manufacturers also 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 will come from learning how to integrate and use all of these modern sustainable energy technologies in a manner consistent with our urban environments.
