HVACR Engineering Technology/
The Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and
Refrigeration Engineering Technology curriculum
is a two-year, upper-division sequence leading to a
bachelor of science degree. Instruction is aimed at
developing expertise in system and controls design,
retrofitting, testing and adjusting, system balancing
and building operations with microcomputer controls.
Students learn up-to-date methods of identifying
and performing efficiency evaluations on different
types of heating, ventilation and air conditioning
systems found in commercial and industrial buildings.
They also learn methods of adjusting and balancing
equipment for maximum performance.
Challenging careers abound in manufacturing,
contracting, building operations and in the
engineering of commercial, institutional and industrial
building systems. These industries are looking for
trained HVACR engineering technicians for a variety
of positions, including applications engineer, project
engineer, systems control, estimator, field technician,
systems representative, control systems trainer and
in-plant engineer. There also are many opportunities
to be found with architectural and engineering firms.
