Keep industry running smoothly with the essential skills for a challenging career in power engineering. If you want a career and not just a job, then this is the program for you

Power engineers are in high demand in Manitoba. If you are self-motivated, responsible and enjoy the technical challenge, this program will prepare you to take the standardized power engineering examination so you can start your career as a 4th Class Power Engineer

As a power engineer, you will be responsible for efficiency, operation and safety for industrial equipment, such as steam engines, air compressors, boilers and turbines. You will learn how to operate and maintain these types of equipment, as well as the mathematics, mechanics, combustion, thermodynamics and instrumentation you will need in this career.

With this eight-month certificate, you will learn how to operate power plants on modern equipment simulating a 400 MW, pulverized coal-fired steam-generating unit. Hands-on learning methods at our North Hill campus will give you practical experience.

Your career could see you working with heating and air conditioning, refrigeration or fire systems.
