Refrigeration and air conditioning: An exciting and expanding industry

What is a Refrigeration and Air Conditioning program?

Students studying Refrigeration and Air Conditioning work with both residential and commercial heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and refrigeration equipment. Technicians are trained to provide the technology to control the environment in any enclosed area - from a home to a space capsule!

Students in our program learn to research and develop applications of more efficient, cost-effective equipment and procedures. Everyday new, exciting and energy-saving innovations are being developed in this industry.

That sounds great, but what is the job outlook?

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, “employment of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration mechanics and installers is projected to grow 21 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations.” This rapidly expanding industry with its new technologies not only provides new job opportunities, but creates numerous possibilities for advancement.
