A unique engineering pathway: from diploma to degree

This program is designed for graduates of approved energy technology diploma programs. It provides a seamless transition to a University of Calgary engineering degree program.

Earn a diploma

Your first and second years of study will take place at an approved polytechnic institution. Once you graduate with an energy-related technology diploma, you're the perfect fit for this unique degree program.

Start your degree

Energy engineering students start university at the perfect time of the year - spring. Over the spring and summer terms, you will acquaint yourselves with university campus life, coursework and resources. 

Two full years

In two years, including two spring and summer semesters - you'll earn an energy engineering degree. You'll study chemical, petroleum, mechanical, and energy and environment engineering. You'll also complete a capstone design project.

Intern option

Between your third and fourth years,you can opt to take a 12- to 16-month internship. This paid work can take place locally, in other parts of Canada or abroad. It's a great let up in the job market.
