CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Heat & Air Cond/Building Maint

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0836  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

Students in this program may select either the Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration specialty (HVAC/R) or the Building Maintenance specialty.  HVAC/R technicians work on systems that control temperature, humidity, and air quality of enclosed spaces.  They are required to design, install, service, and maintain the various types of equipment used to control human comfort, preservation of food products, critical medical supplies, and computer and mechanical processes in residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional environments.  Building maintenance technicians must have most of these same skills in addition to being able to maintain the aesthetic and structural integrity of buildings.  They may also be responsible for maintenance and upkeep of mechanical, plumbing, and electrical equipment, as well as grounds-keeping.  They should be versatile enough to do routine painting, drywall, plastering, woodworking, pool maintenance, as well as some custodial work.  Both of the above technicians must have a strong mechanical aptitude, be self-motivated, willing to accept challenges, and have a structured approach to problem solving.  They should also have good communication skills, the ability to work well with others, and understand all aspects of the construction trade.  Employment opportunities vary with each specialty.
