The energy engineering program will be dealing with energy efficiency, energy services, facility management, plant engineering, environmental compliance and alternative energy technologies. The program combines knowledge from the fields of electrical, mechanical and thermal engineering with sound economic and environmental engineering practices.
As an energy engineer you will apply your skills to increase efficiency and further develop renewable sources of energy. You will be able to find the most efficient and sustainable ways to operate buildings and manufacturing processes, audit the use of energy, and suggest ways to improve the systems. You will be able to suggest advanced lighting, better insulation, more efficient heating and cooling properties of buildings. You will have the expertise to deal with several forms of renewable energy like hydro, solar, biomass, or geothermal. One of the areas where you can be employed in is the oil and natural gas extraction.
