The Electrical Energy Systems (ELES) Option in Electrical Engineering will provide students with theoretical and practical experience in the electrical energy related fields. This option will be useful to students with professional interest in all aspects of generation, transmission, distribution, and processing of electrical energy, including renewable and sustainable energy sources and their integration within the modern electrical grid and community. Particular applications include control, protection and reliable operation of the grid, electromechanical actuators, electric propulsion; electrical power systems of vehicles, aircraft and ships; industrial and manufacturing processes requiring electric energy, and more.
Keep the world green; avoid blackouts! Our way of dealing with energy is facing revolutionary changes affecting all technologies. Engineers need to deal with the ever-increasing complexity of energy handling and energy-dependent systems and infrastructures. Renewable and sustainable energy sources and their integration within the future smart electric grid, industry and community are vital for our future.
Systems and components related to generation, transmission, distribution, storage, processing and consumption of electrical energy on large and small scales.
Control, protection and reliable operation of the electric grid, hybrid and electric transportation; electrical power systems of vehicles, aircraft and ships; electromechanical actuators, industrial and manufacturing processes requiring electric energy, house appliances, and more.
Students who satisfactorily complete the following option will be given recognition as receiving the Bachelor of Applied Science in Electrical Engineering (Electrical Energy Systems Option).
Students interested in the Electrical Energy Systems Option should apply at the end of Second Year Engineering. Both Co-op and Non Co-op students are welcome to apply. Applications will be accepted online starting mid-February.
Deadline: June 15th - Apply Online
