The technology program’s curriculum takes into account society’s changing views on energy and the environment, and how they are transforming the utility and construction sectors.

The utility sector is currently undergoing a radical shift in operating practice that opens doors to a range of innovative energy projects using small-scale sources such as 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 the use of sustainable, integrated architecture and engineering practices for new buildings. Manufacturers 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 are learning how to integrate and use all of these modern sustainable energy technologies in a manner consistent with our urban environments.

Program Highlights

  • A technical curriculum is complemented by project management skills.
  • Graduates of the program are prepared to implement energy solutions for commercial and residential buildings using knowledge of energy systems, energy efficiency and renewable/distributed energy systems, design and maintain heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration units, work in power plants and work with architectural companies to integrate energy technologies into the latest green buildings.
