Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration (HVACR) Engineering Technology (HVACR.S.AAS)

67.0 Credit Hours

This degree is designed for entry-level students pursuing careers in the HVACR 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 sales, service, design, facilities operation, project management or as a laboratory technician for an equipment manufacturer. 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 HVACR technician or designer with knowledge regarding proper system operation.

Program Outcomes

  • Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the troubleshooting, commissioning, design and documentation processes for commercial HVACR systems and subsystems via the application of industry accepted techniques, methods, and tools including but not limited to handbooks, manuals, codes and software.
  • Communicate effectively in a technical environment, including written and oral communication, effective listening and technical presentation.
  • Recognize professional, ethical and societal responsibilities, respect diversity and commit to life-long learning.industry accepted techniques, methods, and tools including but not limited to handbooks, manuals, codes and software.
  • Apply principles of mathematics, physics, chemistry, thermodynamics, psychrometrics and fluid mechanics to HVACR systems.
  • Apply principles of environmental safety and health to HVACR system operation, maintenance, troubleshooting and design.
