General information


Students in the Honours Bachelor of Engineering in Energy Systems Engineering program will learn the skills to design and develop tomorrow's energy systems. This degree program is the first stand-alone program of its kind in Canada. The program was developed to meet the rapidly increasing demand for graduates with the knowledge and skills required to help Canada and the rest of the world meet the terms of the Kyoto agreement, while ensuring that the growing consumption of energy can be satisfied economically and with minimum impact on the environment.

The curriculum provides students 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 the production, storage, distribution and utilization of energy.

Admission requirements


Admission is competitive. The specific average or standing required for admission varies from year to year. Students are selected by taking into consideration a wide range of criteria including school marks, distribution of subjects taken, and performance in subjects relevant to the academic program.
