Program Overview

Energy is a substantial cost to most organizations and industries. It’s also a finite resource. Business decisions are made with energy management in mind. Skilled energy managers positively impact corporate bottom lines and help conserve an important resource. If you’re looking to add to your existing engineering degree or diploma, consider pursuing a future in this growing area of sustainable building.
 
Our one-year Applied Energy Management Program will provide you with the skills to work in energy management, energy auditing, and design and development of efficient new energy systems for commercial and industrial facilities. You’ll gain hands-on experience in commercial building automation, efficient building operation, energy auditing, and energy management including solar energy. Students also learn to apply new energy-efficient technologies and innovative solutions to conservation, sustainability, and management of energy and efficiency for HVAC, lighting, office equipment, and building automation and control systems in commercial buildings. When you graduate, you’ll be ready to apply commercial building energy concepts to buildings in the real world. Enroll today in the Applied Energy Management Graduate Certificate Program and power your engineering career forward.

    Prerequisites:

    • BEEB1213A

    This course introduces the fundamentals of electrical circuits and machines. Both DC and AC electrical theory and circuit application are studied. Students learn the concepts of charge, electric fields, voltage, current, power, energy, magnetic fields and the link between electricity and magnetism for the creation of machines. They also learn how to use the appropriate unit of measurement to measure voltage, current and impedance in an electrical circuit. Learning will be achieved through lectures, in-class activities, and laboratory experiments.

    This course provides students with the basic concepts and skills to calculate heating and cooling loads of commercial buildings. Students will examine the psychrometric properties of air as they apply to commercial building environmental conditions. Students will evaluate the heating and cooling loads of a commercial building well as the psychrometric properties of the air within.

    This course introduces the operation, sizing and selection of heating, cooling and ventilation mechanical system components within a commercial building. Students will learn how to specify, size, and select the appropriate mechanical heating, cooling, and ventilation equipment to suit the needs of a commercial building.
