Energy

Energy Management

A.A.S. Degree (O,T,S)

Students will gain an understanding of energy systems in today's "built environment" and the tools to analyze and quantify energy efficiency. Students will develop sophisticated skills in multi-level analysis, including human and computer modeling, to improve energy efficiency in commercial spaces. These skills will be applied to the description and measurement of energy in building systems with the goal of evaluating and recommending energy solutions that will result in greater efficiency, energy cost savings and lower environmental impact. This approach allows energy users to apply strategic efforts to reduce consumption analytically, as opposed to only replacing controls or undertaking expensive changes in equipment. Academically ready students can apply to the program following the guidelines of each location's competitive admission process. Interested applicants should review the information provided here and contact their program advisor for application requirements.
