(Associate Degree)


Ferris State University

Big Rapids, Michigan, United States

Course format: Classroom

The Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR) Technology program provides a balance of theory and application, in keeping with the philosophy of Ferris State University. This includes a solid foundation of the principles of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration combined with extensive laboratory experience.

While in the lab, students learn to test, systematically troubleshoot, repair and maintain electrical and mechanical HVACR systems and components. Residential and light commercial heating, ventilating and air conditioning along with food preservation refrigeration are the main focus of the program.

An associate degree in this program will transfer into nearly 20 other Ferris bachelor of science degree programs, including business administration, computer information systems, television production and HVACR engineering technology.

Career Opportunities

Because of the continuing demand for technicians, an HVACR graduate can easily find employment in any state or country. In fact, a Ferris HVACR graduate statistically has multiple jobs to choose from at graduation with starting salaries averaging $37,000 per year (although most students have already found employment prior to graduation).

Career opportunities for technicians are multiplying with technological advances in the use of microcomputers for data processing and system control. The demand also is spurred by expansion in the production, storage and marketing of food and other perishables.

The growing emphasis on energy cost and utilization also is creating a need for technicians to renovate, convert and service existing heating and air conditioning systems. Graduates may work as service technicians, manufacturers, laboratory technicians, sales representatives or designers.
