The Bachelor of Engineering - Building Systems Engineering (BSE) program is the newest engineering degree offering in the School of Engineering and is delivered at the honours level. This degree program is unique in Canada as it relates to the complex and ever-changing world of buildings and will allow you to start down the path to pursuing a professional engineering career through licensing with Professional Engineers Ontario. It is geared to motivated individuals looking for challenging careers in building systems, energy and utilities management, building operations and facility management. The program is delivered using a project-based learning environment, where students will find solutions to real-world problems developing the ability to see the big picture and concurrently trade-off engineering, environment, business, societal, and other requirements to optimize and tailor the project solution to the design requirements. Students will study topics such as: lighting, heating, energy, water management, law and building codes. They will design building systems for new smart buildings, but also study retrofitting and applying new technologies to older buildings.
