New Certificate and Degree in Building Automation Systems
Building Automation Program
Industry is seeing a growing demand
for a workforce that combines some of the traditional skill sets of
building technicians with advanced skills in controls programming,
networking, and systems integration. “Control Technicians” or “Building
Automation Technicians” present an emerging and rapidly expanding
market of high-wage employment for community college graduates. Their
skill sets will also be needed for increasing green workforce demands
to implement energy management, efficiency and sustainability measures
Laney has developed an in-depth curricular pathway for students to gain expertise in maintaining, programming, and troubleshooting building control systems. Energy efficiency theory and best practices are interwoven throughout the entire course sequence.

Commercial HVAC Lab
The 8,000 square foot Environmental
Control Technology (ECT) Lab holds a full size commercial hydronic
system consisting of all major components, including boiler, chiller,
heat exchangers, cooling tower, variable frequency drives (VFDs),
variable air volume boxes (VAV), economizers, sensors, and controls.
The hydronic lab was designed by Taylor Engineering, one of the leading
engineering firms for energy efficiency in the country. The lab allows
instructors to simulate a variety of real-life problem scenarios, to
install temporary faults and bugs, and to have students solve complex
problems as a team.
Multi-Vendor Controls Lab
A state-of-the art multi-vendor
training lab, as well as a real-life commercial HVAC system equipped
with the latest controls and protocols, will allow students to simulate
