Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Energy Systems Engineering

With each passing day, the worldwide demand for energy increases. New sources of energy, new methods of energy conversion, transportation and storage, and improved efficiencies in existing energy systems are desperately needed. As an energy systems engineer, you will play a major role in meeting the world’s needs while protecting the environment for many years to come.

Our Energy Systems Engineering program is the first stand-alone program of its kind in Canada. This degree was specifically designed to give you the skills you need to succeed in this dynamic field of study. You will examine and study all forms of energy including:

  • Fossil fuels;
  • Geothermal;
  • Hydro;
  • Nuclear;
  • Solar; and
  • Wind.

You will also learn about more recent developments in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. This program will enable you to generate complete system designs from small-scale devices to large-scale systems and to communicate effectively with other engineers.

The curriculum will provide you with an understanding of the principles and applications of the full range of energy systems and technologies from traditional fossil-fuelled energy systems to alternative energy technologies. This includes energy:

  • Distribution;
  • Production;
  • Storage; and
  • Utilization.

Graduates of this program will become part of an elite group of next-generation professionals responsible for developing sustainable solutions that energize our world. An exciting future in energy awaits you!

Included in the program are courses such as:

  • Electric Power Systems;
  • Emerging Energy Systems;
  • Fossil Fuel Energy Conversion;
  • Fuel Cell Design;
  • Hydrogen Power Systems;
  • Hydroelectric Power Systems;
