This program prepares you to meet the growing needs of employers in the rapidly expanding field of alternative energy, sustainability and energy systems management. You're involved in energy auditing and modelling of existing conventional heating and lighting systems, as well as specifying energy efficiency improvements for residential and commercial buildings. You learn how to analyze site characteristics, client needs and to advise on improving energy efficiency through building design/renovation, HVAC system improvements and the addition of renewable energy.
Energy Sustainability Engineering Technologists are trained in the sizing, specification and commissioning of building systems, process equipment and renewable energy systems. Beyond alternative and renewable energy systems, Energy Sustainability Engineering Technologists develop a strong understanding of how society consumes and produces energy in our building systems.
With the use of industry-recognized software, graduates are able to make recommendations for the improvement of commercial, industrial and residential buildings.
