2 Thank you for your interest in the Green Energy Graduate Diploma (GEGD). Discover the value this program can have in your current position Learn more about course content Experience our state-of-the-art online learning environment Welcome

3 An interactive and flexible new graduate program that provides technical knowledge and training in green energy systems Allows working engineers to access professional development in areas like bioenergy, pollution management, and sustainable buildings What is the GEGD?

4 The value added from GEGD will be as individual as you are, however, in general it offers the following with regards to green energy engineering science, trends, and thinking: Provides applied knowledge and thinking Provides professional development updates Provides Canadian perspective Provides Canadian credential The Green Energy Graduate Diploma; What is in is for you?

5 Professional Engineering is “... any act of planning, designing, composing, evaluating, advising, reporting, directing or supervising that requires the application of engineering principles and concerns the safeguarding of life, health, property, economic interests, the public welfare or the environment, or the managing of any such act.” A working knowledge about green energy principles, engineering science, and systems has many direct links to the responsibilities of a professional engineer Work Environment Applications

6 You’ll take one mandatory course, and three electives. Four courses ME 760 Special Topics in Thermal Engineering: Energy & the Environment ME 738 Special Topics in Materials Engineering: Hydrogen Storage Materials ME 751 Fuel Cell Technology ME 753 Solar Energy ME 760a Special Topics in Thermal Engineering: Building Energy Performances (1) ME 760b Special Topics in Thermal Engineering: Low Energy Building Systems (2) ME 760c Special Topics in Thermal Engineering: Air Pollution and Greenhouse Gases Emission Control ME 765 Special Topics in Fluid Mechanics: Wind Energy
