Program Description

Students develop the skills and knowledge to operate high-energy processes found in power plants such as steam production and use, refrigeration, and gas compression. These processes are found in many industrial, commercial and institutional facilities to support manufacturing, food production, and electrical power generation, as well as to heat and cool buildings. Students learn to operate and maintain equipment such as high-pressure steam systems, boilers, turbines, compressors, chillers, pumps and condensers. In order to ensure power plant processes are operated safely and efficiently, students acquire strong foundation in equipment theory and the underlying science that explains how these machines work. Additionally, students benefit from experiential learning in an on-campus Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) registered power plant, a power plant simulator, and through co-op learning experiences. The program follows the Standardization of Power Engineer Examination Committee (SOPEEC) 4th and 3rd class syllabus and prepares students to write TSSA examinations required for both the 4th and 3rd Class Power (Operating) Engineer certifications.
