Power Engineering Technology

Diploma

Program Overview

Location(s):
  • Saskatchewan Polytechnic Saskatoon campus
Length: 72 weeks: 

Year 1 - 36 weeks; Year 2 - 36 weeks

The world runs on power. Power engineering technologists are in charge of operating and maintaining the complex systems used to operate industrial boilers, pumps, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. Demand for skilled power engineers is growing, opening the door to good jobs in the oil patch, mining, manufacturing, power generation utilities and more.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic is Saskatchewan’s primary provider of power engineering certification. We offer two levels training: the two-year Power Engineering Technology diploma program and the one-year Power Engineering Technician certificate program.

Our Program

Power Engineering Technology is a diploma program. It is currently subject to the high-demand admission process.

Note

This program is open for application from 8:00 a.m., October 1 to 4:30 p.m., February 15 (Saskatchewan times) each academic year. All supporting documentation is required by 4:30 p.m. (Saskatchewan time), February 28(29).

A limited number of international applicants are considered for admission to the program.

Power Engineering Technology is a two-year diploma program offered full time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Saskatoon campus. You’ll gain knowledge and skills in the operation of power (steam) plants and industrial processes, including:

  • air conditioning and refrigeration
  • boiler operations (high and low pressure)
  • communications
  • computer monitoring of plant operations
  • controls and instrumentation
  • environmental (pollution) management
  • equipment checks and maintenance
  • plant safety
  • pump operations
  • water treatment systems

The program combines classroom learning with hands-on labs, power labs, computer simulations and industry work experiences. Graduates are productive on the job from day one—something employers look for when hiring and promoting.

Certification Opportunities

Power engineering is divided into levels of skill and training called classes (First Class is the highest level). You progress from one class to another through a combination of work experience, course completions and rigorous interprovincial exams.

After completing Year 1, you will earn one year of Fourth Class qualifying time credit from the Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan (TSASK), and be prepared to challenge:

  • TSASK interprovincial (standardized) Fourth Class exams, and
  • TSASK provincial Refrigeration Engineers Certificate exam

After completing Semester 3, you are prepared to challenge standardized Third Class exams.

After completing semester 4 (Second Class Part A topics) and passing all four TSASK Third Class exams, you will earn a provincial Third Class certificate. You will be eligible to challenge the TSASK standardized Second Class exams.

TSASK interprovincial certificates are recognized across the country.

Personal study is recommended before you write any industry certification exam.

The Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) website includes a video that provides information about the power engineering industry and training that may be helpful in determining whether this career is right for you. (The program and students shown are not from Saskatchewan Polytechnic).

The standardized interprovincial examination fees are:

Fourth Class - $212 (Year 1)

Third Class - $424 (Year 2)

Second Class - $636 (Year 2)

The provincial examination fee for the Refrigeration Engineers exam is $106.

Your Career

Power engineering technologists work with large, complex power systems. You could work as a power engineer or process operator in utility (power) plants, refineries, pulp and paper mills, breweries, mines, gas processing plants, heavy oil upgraders, fertilizer plants or chemical plants. You could be responsible for heating, air-conditioning, ventilation and refrigeration systems in commercial, institutional or residential complexes. You can also put your knowledge to work in industrial and mechanical design and sales.

Admission Method

High Demand

High-demand programs consistently have more applicants than spaces available at each Saskatchewan Polytechnic location at which they are offered. High-demand programs have admission requirements plus additional selection criteria. The application period for high-demand programs is 8:00 a.m., October 1, to 4:30 p.m., February 15 (Saskatchewan times), each academic year. All supporting documentation is required by 4:30 p.m. (Saskatchewan time), February 28(29).

Selection Criteria

  • High School Graduates: The admission average is calculated from the final marks in courses required for admission to the program.
  • High School Students: The admission average is calculated from final marks provided by February 28(29). Conditional admission may be granted on this basis. Current high school students must order transcripts to be sent directly to Saskatchewan Polytechnic at the end of Semester 1 and the end of Semester 2 of the grade 12 year. The final grade 12 mark will be used where the course is completed. The final grade 11 mark will be used only in the absence of the grade 12 mark in the same subject.
  • Completion of the Industry Awareness Questionnaire
  • Additional points can be added to the above total with evidence of prior work history/education transcripts: Employment History form

For required information on preparing your application, refer to the
Selection Process Guide for Applicants, and Frequently Asked Questions.
