About this course

Enhance your specialist skills in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems with this qualification. Our focus is to design HVAC systems to ensure optimal human comfort and health in the places we live, work, and play, all while maintaining a sustainable impact on the environment.

The advanced diploma has selected elective units that will assist in a HVAC specialisation. During your studies you will learn about the principles of fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, central plant operations, applied psychrometrics, electronics, programming, workplace communications, sustainability, and energy management. Furthermore immerse yourself in cutting-edge areas such as building information modelling and computer-aided drafting and design.

You will be guided by our skilled team of lecturers who are experienced industry professionals as you are trained in designing and implementing today's computer-controlled HVAC systems for residential and commercial settings.

Empower your career by acquiring the credentials to become a proficient problem-solver in HVAC systems, ensuring utmost human comfort and health. Elevate your engineering prowess to a supervisory level, driving innovation and fostering optimal environments for all.

Please note: The MEM60122 Advanced Diploma of Engineering (BIW5) will replace the MEM60112 Advanced Diploma of Engineering in Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. Additionally, it's important to note that the Carlisle campus does not presently possess accreditation from Engineers Australia (EA).
