The Power Systems Engineering (PSE) program is a four-year Bachelor’s degree designed to meet the demand for engineers in the rapidly evolving electrical power sector. This program provides a study of electrical power engineering, trans-disciplinary engineering of renewable energy generation, and smart-grid and energy conservation technologies. The program provides a solid foundation in mathematics, science, and engineering theory, and gradually builds practical and engineering design skills as well as a full spectrum of employability skills through its project-based learning approach and paid co-operative education.

What You’ll Learn

  • Solve engineering problems related to electric power systems by applying advanced principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering.
  • Identify, formulate, analyze and solve complex engineering problems in electric power systems to reach substantiated conclusions.
  • Develop specifications based on determined requirements for electric power systems.
  • Investigate power system problems using appropriate methods that include research, practical experimentation, simulations, engineering analysis and information synthesis in order to reach valid conclusions.
  • Evaluate, verify and validate electric power engineering systems against specifications and requirements.
  • Design new solutions in the field of power systems engineering using appropriate engineering design method and process, considering health and safety risks, applicable standards, economic, environmental, cultural and societal aspects, in order to meet stakeholder requirements.
  • Create, select, adapt, and extend appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering tools for analysis, design, development and evaluation of electric power systems, and effectively apply them to solve power systems engineering problems.
  • Work independently and in diverse teams using leadership, interpersonal, group dynamics and conflict resolution skills to provide flexible and adaptable solutions.
  • Communicate complex engineering and non-technical concepts using a variety of communication techniques that include oral presentations, technical reports, design documentation and instructions. Interpret professional, ethical, and legal codes of practice for professional engineers in order to be in compliance with industrial, labor and environmental legislation, and to protect the public and public interest.
  • Apply stewardship of society, environment, law, and health & safety effectively to engineering design and process development activities.
  • Apply professional ethics, accountability and equity to maintain fairness and demonstrate values and respect diversity across global settings and societal contexts.
  • Effectively incorporate economics and business practices including project, resource, risk and change management into the practice of engineering research and development.
  • Identify and address professional development needs independently, to maintain technical and professional currency and competence, and to contribute to the advancement of knowledge.

I learned about WIST (Women in the Skilled Trades) Electrical Technician program through a high school career fair in 2018, "Jill of All Trades." There must have been 100 women there to introduce girls like me to the skilled trades. I was always interested in engineering, but I loved to take things apart and study them, which is why working as an electrical technician made so much sense. I didn't realize it then, but that day is when I decided to be an electrician. I couldn't have done it without the WIST program and Conestoga. I hope more girls and women will consider taking the leap.
