The overall objective of this course is to prepare students for professional practice in the area of mechanical system design for commercial buildings. Upon completion of the course, students will possess the skills to calculate heating, cooling, and ventilation requirements, design and evaluate conventional HVAC systems to meet these requirements in the context of codes and standards, and design and evaluation low energy systems for sustainable buildings.
