The Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR) Engineering Technology and Energy Management 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. 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. Also learn methods of adjusting and balancing equipment for maximum performance.
Ferris uses a problem-solving level to prepare technologists to fill the wide technological gap between service technicians and engineers.
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.
Note: There is a five-day on-campus laboratory session during the second fall semester.
