Minor in Energy/HVAC

The Energy/HVAC (heating, ventilating, air conditioning) minor concentrates on the design and operation of heat and mass transfer systems, which produce the needed environments for manufacturing operations, industrial processes, and human comfort. Systems utilizing mechanical equipment are focused on such as pumps, blowers, fans, air compressors, heat exchangers, internal combustion engines, steam turbines, and boilers. This minor leads to multiple career opportunities, such as an HVAC systems engineer, Process plant engineer, Maintenance supervisor and many more!
