Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning


The A.A.S. degree program provides a well-rounded education in HVAC technology with a thorough understanding of the theory and applications necessary for systems operation.

Graduates of the A.A.S. degree program will have a thorough understanding of the math and physics that HVAC principles are built upon. This program will also prepare the student wishing to pursue a bachelor's degree in HVAC. Students interested in a bachelor's degree are advised to contact the HVAC faculty prior to enrollment for specific course suggestions. Interested students can sign up for an information session at MCC's Applied Technologies Center for a tour and to learn more about the program.
