What is the Energy & Environment Engineering Technologies program?
Students in the Energy & Environment Engineering Technologies Program will gain hands-on skills and foundational knowledge in the areas of Environmental, Petroleum and Power Engineering Technologies.
What are the benefits of taking this program?
This Dual-Credit Program allows students to investigate which engineering program best suits their career interests. Students wanting to pursue a post-secondary education in Engineering or Engineer Technologies can use one or more of the course credits gained in this Dual-Credit Program to advance their education towards an Engineer Technologies Diploma Program with SAIT’s McPhail School of Energy. The University of Calgary Bachelor of Science in Energy Engineering is designed to provide Power Engineering Technology and Petroleum Engineering Technology graduates from SAIT with a seamless transition to a University of Calgary Engineering Degree Program.
