About

Power Engineering Technology at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT)

Power engineers work to keep our lights on and motors running. They are responsible for all aspects of generating, transmitting and making use of electrical power, and since nearly all facets of modern society require electricity at some stage, these professionals play an essential role in our economy and everyday life.

In this comprehensive 2-year diploma program, students will study thermodynamics, electricity, electronics, refrigeration and air conditioning. They will also gain skills in mechanical drafting, blueprint reading, technical mathematics and physics. By the end of the program, they will have the foundational knowledge and skills to gain provincially-recognized certification and begin a rewarding career as a power engineering technologist.

Hands-on, industry-relevant skills

The intent of the program is to prepare students to make both safety and efficiency a priority on the job. In the classroom, NAIT will discuss foundational concepts of boilers, electricity, instrumentation, safety, codes and legislation, thermodynamics and physics. 

By the time students graduate, they will have the knowledge, skills and confidence to:

  • operate boilers
  • operate turbines
  • control and operate refrigeration and air conditioning systems
  • maintain and repair boilers and auxiliaries, pumps, compressors, turbines, generators
  • commission equipment
