This program has been developed for those seeking employment as a power engineering technician who operates and troubleshoots the energy components in industrial power plants (chemical, food, pulp and paper etc.), electrical power plants (coal, gas, nuclear, wind, solar, methane, cogeneration, flex fuel etc.), or commercial buildings. The work may involve system monitoring and work with boilers, turbines, and condensers in steam power plants as well as internal combustion engines. Subjects of instruction will follow the Standardized Power Engineers Examination Committee (SOPEEC) syllabus and prepare the students to write the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) examinations for 4th and 3rd class certification after 2 years as an operator. This program features co-operative training and use of a state-of-the-art power systems control room simulator.
