Congratulations to NSCC Graduates 2011

I would like to take a minute to congratulate the graduates of NSCC this year. My campus in Middleton, NS had their graduation on Friday. The Waterfront Campus in Dartmouth where I currently work is having their graduation today. I know first hand the challenges associated with earning your diploma, especially the heavy course load of 6 classes. It is a task that takes hard work and determination.

I would like to thank the Energy Sustainability Engineering Technology graduates in Middleton, NS for being such good role models and mentors to us students in the first year this past year. Hopefully we will be able to provide the same level of support to the new ESET students coming into the program this year.

I wish all graduates the best of luck in their future endeavors!


1st Year of ESET Complete

Today marks the end of my first year of the Energy Sustainability Engineering Technology program at NSCC. I am officially done for the summer and eligible for employment. I finished my work term working with NSCC Applied Research. I am hoping to be hired on with them for the next month and should find out soon. I will still need a job for the tail end of the summer.

The ESET program at NSCC has opened my eyes to the growing market for Green. Green construction and green energy markets are growing incredibly fast. The skills I have learned in my first year of the program include:

– Energy auditing
– Energy modelling
– Renewable energy assessments
– Drafting in AutoCAD and Google Sketchup
