The programs offered in the Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science have been created in consultation with key industry representatives in the fields of energy and radiation, to meet the many challenges and growing employment demand in these fields. Many of the programs in this faculty are unique in Canada.
Applications that involve energy systems in general and nuclear power plants in particular, benefit many aspects of our lives. Society depends on qualified people to design and develop new techniques, operate and maintain existing equipment, and to ensure that the benefits of energy technologies are applied as widely as possible.
Students will benefit from the university’s technology-enriched learning environment, which provides technically enhanced learning and teaching, including computer simulation of nuclear, fossil and alternative energy systems.
A First-year Engineering Success Program provides first-year engineering students who need extra time to adapt to university with an opportunity, before the start of second year, to complete first-year courses for which they have not obtained credit, to upgrade their grade point average and academic standing, and to improve their preparation for studies in subsequent years.
Faculty and staff at Ontario Tech University come from diverse academic backgrounds and are excited to share their knowledge and life experiences with students. To view a list of Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science faculty and staff members visit nuclear.ontariotechu.ca.
The faculty’s research includes nuclear reactor design and safety analysis, nuclear power plant design and simulation, safety-critical digital instrumentation and control systems, reliability engineering, human-machine interface and uncertainty analysis, radiation biophysics, dosimetry and microdosimetry, environmental effects of radiation, health and medical physics, radioactive waste management, electrochemical and corrosion effects.
The Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science offers Master of Applied Science and Master of Engineering programs in Nuclear Engineering, graduate diploma programs, and a PhD in Nuclear Engineering.
