This guide is an overview of the many considerations involved in a waterpower project. It is designed to support Aboriginal communities who will be proponents (i.e., the developer), partners or participate otherwise in waterpower projects. The information is also of value for other groups new to waterpower development and those who want to partner with Aboriginal communities.
This Guide is meant to assist community and indigenous communities groups in the development of their own small-scale renewable energy projects. Commissioned by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, it covers Canada, Mexico and the United States. While mainly focusing on the co-op business model, the information presented is equally applicable to other business models, such as small business or corporate structures. The Guide covers all the stages of project development and provides guidance on how to approach each one.
Civil engineering is a broad term encompassing several distinct areas of specialization. It is also the oldest of the engineering professions. Included in the scope of civil engineering are the design, planning, managing and construction of highways, airports, harbours, dams, hydro development bridges, buildings, industrial plants, site remediation, pollution control and so much more.
The program will provide the latest technical knowledge on upstream, production, and downstream aspects of oil and gas engineering. The program will also address serious issues faced by the oil and gas industries, such as sustainable development, environmental protection, risk, reliability and safety. In addition, the program will cover drilling engineering, phase behavior of petroleum fluid, production engineering, compact process equipment design, offshore environmental operations, and natural gas engineering.
To become a professional marine diesel mechanic you must learn how to install, operate and maintain a variety of diesel engines. We offer workshop, classroom and work term experience that will prepare you for a career in the operation and maintenance of marine diesel engines and auxiliary equipment. You will work on marine vessels, offshore drilling installations or in the land-based industry servicing the marine and offshore industries.
The Marine Institute’s joint diploma/degree in Ocean Mapping produces outstanding graduates with solid technical skills to collect, manage, analyze and disseminate ocean data. Delve deep into the ocean to examine the ocean surface, the water column, the seabed and the seabed subsurface. You’ll train in marine surveying equipment, optical and acoustic remote sensing technologies, oceanographic instrumentation and geographic information systems.
Ocean technology is a major driver of the oceans economy. Local companies are active not only in the offshore oil and gas sector, but have also expanded into international markets by developing and deploying innovative ocean technologies. Modern ships and offshore production rigs are equipped with instrumentation that enables the monitoring of all activities from a central control room. As well, ocean observation systems provide real-time information about ocean conditions or seismic activity.
Be among the professionals who influence this new and rapidly growing sector of the marine industry. As a marine environmental technologist, you will develop environmentally sound projects and work to prevent and create responses to marine pollution or degradation. You will go from lakes to rivers, and coastal zones to the fragile offshore. You will be responsible for protecting the marine environment and developing solutions to manage our marine resources. You will gain hands-on experience as you search for smart solutions in the field, lab and boardroom.
You'll learn how to design all the piping and support systems that permit marine vehicles to operate safely and efficiently in harsh marine environments. You'll use the latest marine design software to specify, select and design such marine systems as firefighting, bilge and ballast, fuel oil, lube oil, HVAC, and more. We'll teach you to design and select propulsion systems from diesel engines and gas turbines to propellers and water jets. And, you will be able to choose among careers, at home or around the world.
You will control ship systems and solve problems working with your mind and hands, both on land and at sea. We will equip you with the skills necessary to engineer a career you'll love. Responsibilities will include the mechanical operations of a vessel such as main propulsion and auxiliary systems. You will offer employers a strong technical background in marine engineering technology. With the real experience at sea in areas such as engineering knowledge, naval architecture, and machinery maintenance you will quickly distinguish yourself from the competition.
