Associate in Applied Science, Major in General Technology,

Specialization: Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning

and Refrigeration Technology

 

Few aspects of modern living are untouched by modern refrigeration and air conditioning. Businesses, commercial operations, manufacturing processes, storage and shipping operate under controlled-temperature conditions. New environmental protection agency (EPA) amendments to the clean air act have changed air conditioning and refrigeration so dramatically that HVAC/R services require new equipment, new procedures, new refrigerants and even new attitudes. The HVAC/R technology program addresses all the new EPA regulations and prepares students for the challenges of future change in the industry as they learn to become heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers.
