COURSE: WENG 560 Fundamentals of HVAC Design and AnalysisOBJECTIVE: To provide mechanical engineers with the tools and best practices applicable to HVAC system analysis and design. DESCRIPTION: ENG 560 is a web-based advanced level course intended to build upon HVAC fundamentals to give mechanical engineers the ability to perform HVAC system analysis and design. This course will cover: General HVAC concepts, Systems, and Equipment. Major topics include thermodynamics, heat transfer, psychrometrics, design conditions, facility energy estimating & load calculations, air and water system design, air-conditioning systems & configurations, air-processing equipment, and refrigeration. PRIMARY AUDIENCE: Mechanical engineers responsible for the analysis, design, procurement, and operation of HVAC systems. SECONDARY AUDIENCE: Other Engineers, technicians, engineering project managers, or energy managers. GRADE: Commissioned AFSC 32E (CE) officers in the grades O-1 thru O-4; civilian GS-301-09 thru GS-14; 3E (CE) noncommissioned officers E-7 through E-9. PREREQUISITES: B.S. in Mechanical Engineering or a B.S. in any Engineering degree with successful completion of WENG 460, Introduction to Mechanical Systems DELIVERY METHOD: Distance Learning (Web) “This course is offered once per year and historically runs from October – December. The next fiscal year’s offering is finalized during the summer, so be sure to check back then. In the meantime check out WENG 460 & 563. You will get more out of this course if you take both of those first.” V/r, JOSHUA I.
