Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration (HVACR) Technology (HVACR.S.AAS)
- Division: Science, Mathematics and Engineering
- Department: HVAC-R Engineering Technology
This degree is designed for entry-level students pursuing careers in the HVAC-R industries, as well as experienced technicians in need of upgrade training. The program focuses on the basic operating principles of commercial and industrial HVAC systems, allowing one to pursue careers in installation, service, facilities operation, project management, sales, laboratory technician for an equipment manufacturer, or as a designer. These principles are presented through lecture and laboratory exercises in a step-by-step fashion by addressing refrigeration, heating, distribution, filtration and control as individual subsystems. Upper-level courses tie the subsystems together to discuss how they interact, providing the HVAC-R technician or designer with knowledge regarding proper system operation.
