The five-year Energy Systems or Nuclear Engineering and Management program combines the study of nuclear or energy systems engineering and business.
The first two years of study provide students with a solid foundation in the fundamentals of mathematics and sciences, with Years 3 and 5 concentrating on engineering sciences and specific nuclear engineering courses. In Year 4, students in the management program focus their study on business.
Engineering and Management
The Engineering and Management combination programs meet the rapidly increasing need for engineers with the leadership skills to succeed in business and management.
Students study the complete engineering program, and also gain critical management skills in key areas of business including accounting, finance, operations, human resources and marketing.
Students in these programs normally take two semesters of business and management courses for 30 credit hours after successfully completing third year. The regular fourth year of the engineering program is then taken in Year 5 of the program.
Applications to the Bachelor of Engineering and Management will be accepted in the winter semester of a student's third year of study. A minimum CGPA of 2.3 is required to be eligible to apply to the program and to continue in the program. This program may have limited space and applications are considered on a competitive basis. Successful applicants will be notified by the Registrar's office by the end of May after the term of application.
Work placement/internship opportunities
Optional work placement opportunities will be available. A 12- to 16-month optional Internship program is also available for students completing the third year of the program. Students must have a minimum CGPA of 2.3 to be eligible.
The undergraduate Nuclear Engineering program is designed to meet the requirements of the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. Each graduate is eligible to apply for licensing as a professional engineer (PEng) in any province or territory in Canada.
