Program description - August 2021
The Power Systems Engineering (PSE) program is a four-year Bachelor's degree designed to meet the demand for engineers in the rapidly evolving electrical power sector. This program provides a study of electrical power engineering, trans-disciplinary engineering of renewable energy generation, and smart-grid and energy conservation technologies. The program provides a solid foundation in mathematics, science, and engineering theory, and gradually builds practical and engineering design skills as well as a full spectrum of employability skills through its project-based learning approach and paid co-operative education.
