Students are not currently being admitted to this program.

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.

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. 

Admission requirements

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.
