|Description:||No matter what challenges arise in the future, there will always be a need for qualified people to produce smart and efficient electrical energy solutions. Electrical energy is the backbone of the world today and everyone relies on the safe generation, transmission, distribution and protection of this energy. Hydro utilities are in need of skilled technologists that have a strong foundation of modern electrical energy and who can help the industry move forward into the smart energy efficient digital age. This program is part of a Hydro One Partnership.
Students will benefit from hands-on learning in the Caroline Street Substation, located in downtown Hamilton, as well as gain access to a real-world application of Energy Systems labs in The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation, the new net zero building at Fennell Campus that is the first of its kind in Ontario and experience applied research in power, solar, wind energy using the state-of-the-art smart grid/microgrid at the Stoney Creek Energy Research Centre.
