O que eu aprenderei?

The Energy Systems Engineering Technology (Fast-Track) program allows qualified college or university graduates direct admission into Year 2 (Semester 3) of this three-year program to receive a Technology advanced diploma in four semesters.

Forming the base of this college engineering program will be society's changing views on energy and the environment, which are transforming the utility and construction sectors. As such, it will focus on offering you the fundamental skills to understand energy and its uses in modern society.

A radical shift in operating practice in the utility sector is currently opening the doors to ground-breaking 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 has also adopted a host of new building initiatives that are quickly increasing green awareness, and the use, of sustainable and integrated architecture and engineering practices for new buildings. Manufacturers, meanwhile, have various new products that provide ways to implement advanced energy control in commercial and residential structures.

The challenge and opportunity will be to learn how to integrate and use all of these modern sustainable energy technologies in a manner consistent with our urban environments.

Due to the energy industry's changing nature, this program will be challenging but will result in a unique blend of technical, managerial and entrepreneurial skills that are highly sought after in modern energy and sustainable building companies and sectors.

Program Highlights

You gain hands-on experience through practical labs, which enhance classroom learning.

Applied research and development projects promote innovation skills, and you have the opportunity to work on modern energy systems.

The Energy Systems Engineering Technology (Fast-Track) program's technical curriculum is complemented by project management skills.

Career Outlook

  • Junior energy auditor
  • Energy consultant assistant
  • Boiler technologist assistant
  • Green energy systems technologist
  • Building automation technologist

Areas of Employment

Engineers or skills tradespersons, who have accumulated enough on the job experience to understand a broad range of technologies, currently work in the energy industry. However, a widening skills labour shortage and quickly advancing technology in the energy sector are creating a huge demand for technicians who possess a breadth of knowledge across the mechanical, electrical, electronic and automation engineering fields.

Graduates are prepared to apply knowledge of heat transfer, fluid mechanics and mechanics to industries such as:

Architecture (to integrate energy technologies into the latest green buildings)

Moulding and casting

Integrated circuit packaging

Heat exchange, boiler design and manufacture petrochemical processing
