Energy and Power (Full Time)

Learn about Energy and Power through hands-on projects to understand the interplay of the generation, distribution and the use of energy. Students will learn how to design and construct motors, pumps, heat exchangers, hydraulics and pipeline systems. Work with renewable and non-renewable energy generation, transformers and the electrical grid to understand how energy travels along power lines. Five types of energy will be explored – mechanical, heat, chemical, electromagnetic and nuclear power. Students will also learn about automation by programming and managing robotics.

How You’ll Learn Hands-On

Get out of the classroom and into the real world with projects such as:

  • Build an electric motor.
  • Design a mini-hydro electric system.
  • Design and run automated systems.
  • Design a system to transmit electricity to a new housing development.
  • Develop a system to protect a transformer.
  • Solar, Thermal, Chemical, and Mechanical Energy Systems.
  • Learn programming used in mechatronics and robotics.
  • Energy Fundamentals.
  • Solar Module.
  • Solar/Wind Systems.
  • BioEnergy.
