Overview

Program Overview

Specialization in building automation is an emerging and growing employment opportunity, especially in the construction and property development sector. We will provide the skills and knowledge you need for building science, building automation systems, networking and project management. Upon graduation, you will be prepared for jobs in the industrial/manufacturing sector and will have the skill set expected by the construction and property development sector. Builders and property managers require people to design and integrate building control systems such as lighting, telephony, security, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Heating Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC), air quality, energy consumption and fire and safety. They need technologists familiar with a centralized approach, who can manage and control a building from an interface that provides building-wide efficiency, cost-effective operations and information sharing.

Full Description

Building automation systems don't just control the basics: they regulate airflow, monitor energy use and are integrated with security, lighting and other building systems to deliver comfort, safety and energy efficiency. Today’s buildings are increasingly complex, and they differ in use and size, but also in operating hours, comfort levels and environmental conditions. Offices, residences, hotels, schools and administrative buildings all have different requirements. Optimal building services technology is the result of appropriate systems design and integration during planning, construction, commissioning and operation.

This advanced diploma program in Building Automation provides students the technical skills they need for success in the job market. Students learn to:

  • Install, program, adjust and maintain building automation systems
  • Program and install sensors, actuators and controllers
  • Collect data for use in real-time or for archiving in a central server
  • Work with building software platforms that interconnect different systems

Graduates will have a diverse set of skills and abilities that will also prepare them for "green" careers focused on energy efficiency, renewable energy and the environment. This program provides a skill set that is in high demand in both the construction industry and the controls and automation industry.

INDUSTRY SKILLS

  • Safety practices in the installation and troubleshooting of HVAC/R systems, including applicable codes and standards of the NEC, ASHRAE, OSHA, EPA and other regulatory bodies.
  • Basic HVAC/R processes and the function, layout and operation of commercial HVAC/R systems.
  • Functions, operating characteristics and applications of the control loops and control modes in digital, analog and pneumatic commercial control systems.
  • Blueprints and manufacturer’s technical instructions for installing or servicing a sensor, controller, actuator and related relays and power supplies.
  • General-purpose software and specific building automation software that monitors and controls HVAC/R and electrical systems.
  • Various BAS controls and systems, including DCS, PLC, PAC and SCADA.
  • Functions of network devices and protocols, such as a bridge, router, gateway, hub, firewall, twisted pair, Ethernet, TCP/IP, Zigbee, WiFi, BAS/IP and BacNet.
  • Emerging green technologies, such as solar, wind and hydronic, and how they can be integrated into building systems and residential applications.

Program Learning Outcomes

The graduate has reliably demonstrated the ability to:

  1. Fabricate and build electrical, electronic and mechanical components and assemblies in accordance with operating standards, job requirements and specifications.
  2. Analyze, interpret and produce electrical, electronic and mechanical drawings and other related technical documents and graphics necessary for electromechanical design in compliance with industry standards.
  3. Select and use a variety of troubleshooting techniques and equipment to assess, modify, maintain and repair electromechanical circuits, equipment, processes, systems and subsystems.
  4. Modify, maintain, and repair electrical, electronic and mechanical components, equipment, and systems to ensure that they function according to specifications and to optimize production.
  5. Design and analyze mechanical components, processes and systems by applying engineering principles and practices.
  6. Design, analyze, build, select, commission, integrate and troubleshoot a variety of industrial motor controls and data acquisition devices and systems, digital circuits, passive AC and DC circuits, active circuits and microprocessor-based systems.
  7. Install and troubleshoot computer hardware and programming to support the electromechanical engineering environment.
  8. Analyze, program, install, integrate, troubleshoot and diagnose automated systems including robotic systems.
  9. Establish and maintain inventory, records and documentation systems to meet organizational and industry standards and requirements.
  10. Select and purchase electromechanical equipment, components and systems that fulfill job requirements and functional specifications.
  11. Specify, coordinate and apply quality-control and quality-assurance programs and procedures to meet organizational standards and requirements.
  12. Work in compliance with relevant industry standards, laws and regulations, codes, policies and procedures.
  13. Develop strategies for ongoing personal and professional development to enhance work performance and to remain current in the field and responsive to emergent technologies and national and international standards.
  14. Contribute as an individual and a member of an electromechanical engineering team to the effective completion of tasks and projects.
  15. Design and analyze electromechanical systems by interpreting fluid mechanics and the attributes and dynamics of fluid flow used in hydraulic and fluid power systems
  16. Contribute to project management through planning, implementation and evaluation of projects, and monitoring of resources, timelines and expenditures as required.
