Overview

Energy Systems Engineering (ERSE) is a broad category of engineering that deals with energy production, transportation, and storage in the most efficient, economical, and environmentally friendly manner. It covers the conventional and unconventional forms of energy, including fossil fuels and sustainable energy resources, such as solar, wind, geothermal, hydro, and nuclear, etc. The interdisciplinary skills developed through the program facilitate the seamless transition into the future shape of energy. Energy systems engineers take the lead on sustainability and resolve highly complex energy problems our society faces.

The three options in the University of Regina’s Energy Systems Engineering degree program are complementary to each other, and, as a whole, the program trains future engineers to be part of the transition to the future energy sector that addresses climate change. Here’s how:

  • The Petroleum Engineering option contributes to the responsible extraction of underground oil and gas.
  • The Sustainable Energy Engineering option focuses on developing renewable energy resources, such as solar, wind, geothermal, hydro, and nuclear.
  • The Energy Transportation and Storage option works on energy distribution, conversion, and storage systems essential for sustaining the increasing energy demands.

One Program, Three Options

Energy Systems Engineering bachelor’s degree students can choose one of these three options, with the flexibility to take courses from all areas to expand their career options:

  • Bachelor of Applied Science in Energy Systems Engineering, Petroleum Engineering
  • Bachelor of Applied Science in Energy Systems Engineering, Sustainable Energy Engineering
  • Bachelor of Applied Science in Energy Systems Engineering, Energy Transportation and Storage

Accreditation

The new Energy Systems Engineering bachelor’s degree program will be accredited before the first students graduate in the 2026 Spring/Summer semester. The accreditation visit from the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) will happen in 2025.

CO-OP PROGRAM

Co-op provides a real-world look at various industries and occupations and presents a means for students to work their way through university.

Students are required to complete four, four-month work terms in the industry, alternating with in-class semesters. They start their first work term midway through their second year. Students achieve a total of 16 months of work experience. The program expands the normal four-year program to five years, with course scheduling structured to accommodate the co-op students’ work terms. This means the school operates year-round, and students typically take spring/summer as well as the traditional fall and winter semesters.

If you are interested in becoming a Co-op student, check to see when and what pre-requisites you need to have completed before becoming a part of the program. Make sure that you are qualified prior to submit an application.

INTERNSHIP

For students interested in having a single work term, the Internship program enables students to undertake a 12-month or 16-month work term with a single employer toward the end of their academic program.

Career opportunities

Your bachelor’s degree in energy systems engineering will prepare you for a career in the changing energy sector. Here are the careers that graduates will be prepared for in each of the three options:
