Information about St Olaf College HVAC technician, registering for degree programs, and taking practice exams for free online. Engineering is one of the fastest-growing employment areas, for several strong reasons. As technical progress permeates industrial processes in manufacturing, food technology and agriculture, engineers are increasingly in demand. If you complete the HVAC technician program, for example, there are a variety of concentrations that may appeal to you such as heating science, ventilation systems, or refrigeration methods. Further, due to advances in building technology, there is a growing shortage of HVAC technician graduates, and of skilled engineering technicians in general. Please use the form above to request admissions info for St Olaf College.

In modern buildings the design, installation, and control systems of various functions are integrated into one or more HVAC systems. Heaters exist for various types of fuel, including solid fuels, liquids, and gases. Another type of heat source is electricity, used in baseboard heaters. Alternatively, warm air may be distributed through duct work systems using metal or fiberglass ducts. Many systems use the same ducts to distribute air cooled by an evaporator coil for air conditioning. Because an air conditioner moves heat between the indoor coil and the outdoor coil, both must be kept clean. This means that you must regularly clean the condenser coil, in addition to replacing the air filter at the evaporator coil.

HVAC technicians may receive training from technical schools or community colleges that offer HVAC tech training in heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration. These programs generally last from 6 months to 2 years, and lead to a certificate or an associate’s degree. The median annual wage for heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration HVAC engineering technicians was $45,110 as of May 2015. Further, employment of HVAC technician graduates is projected to grow 14 percent over the next decade, much faster than average.

Solar Cell Technology

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) leads public research in innovative solar power technologies. Photovoltaic arrays, or PV for short, harness the sun?s power and turn it into electricity. When the sun shines onto a solar panel, photons are absorbed by the cells in the panel, which creates an electric field across the layers. Photovoltaic arrays must be mounted on a stable, durable structure that tilts the PV array at a fixed angle determined by the local latitude. To obtain the highest annual energy output, modules in the northern hemisphere are pointed due south and inclined at an angle equal to the local latitude. Alternatively, automatic mechanisms may be installed to move panels to track the sun across the sky, which provides more energy and a higher return on investment (ROI). Inverters are used to convert the direct current (DC) electricity generated by solar photovoltaic modules into alternating current (AC). Finally, large batteries allow for the storage of solar photovoltaic energy when bad weather blocks sunlight from reaching the photovoltaic panels.

Organic PV, or OPV, cells are composed of carbon-rich polymers and can be tailored to enhance a specific function of the cell, such as sensitivity to a certain type of light. This technology has the theoretical potential to provide electricity at a lower cost than silicon or thin-film technologies. Concentration PV, also known as CPV, focuses sunlight onto a solar cell by using a mirror or lens. By focusing sunlight onto a small area, less PV material is required. This technology uses mirrors to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto receivers that collect solar energy and convert it to heat, which can then be used to produce electricity.

Engineering Job Listings

The Fundamentals of Engineering exam should be taken immediately after earning a bachelors degree from an ABET-accredited program. Engineers who pass this exam are called engineers in training (EIT), or engineer interns. After meeting work experience requirements, engineer interns can attempt a second certifying exam, called the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam. Thereafter, acquisition of a professional engineering license enables management of junior engineers, the ability to sign off on engineering projects, and provide services directly to the public. Wages vary by employer and location. Aside from salary, most engineering jobs include excellent benefits, as well as retirement plans.
