Energy Systems Engineering

This is a master of applied science (MASc.) program.

Program overview

Energy systems engineering is a critical area in need of innovation and highly qualified personnel.

The need for readily available and high quality energy is expanding in Newfoundland and Labrador and globally, which has created a worldwide demand for professional training at the graduate level in areas related to the energy industry.

The demand for sustainable energy, as well as the environmental concerns of traditional techniques require significant innovation in energy systems engineering.

To develop more sustainable techniques requires research and innovation to achieve energy production and utilization that is financially viable, readily available and environmentally benign. This program is inter-disciplinary. It addresses the complexity and required expertise in several technical disciplines by the industry.

Course requirements

Students must complete 30 credit hours of course work, which includes five core courses, three elective courses and a six-credit-hour project to be completed over the last two semesters of the program.

There are two streams:

Stream A focuses on energy generation and utilization and Stream B focuses heavily on electrical aspects of energy engineering. Stream A is designed for students with an engineering degree in mechanical, chemical, industrial or in a related discipline from a university of recognized standing. Stream B is designed for students with a degree in electrical engineering or in a related discipline from a university of recognized standing.
