Welcome to the Department of Environmental Control Technology

The Department of Environmental Control Technology of New York City College of Technology (City Tech) offers two degree programs: a bachelor of technology degree in facilities management and an associate in applied science degree in heating ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R).

The faculty and staff of the Environmental Control Technology Department are dedicated to preparing our graduates for substantial and meaningful careers in all aspects of the facilities management and heating and air conditioning industries. We are here to teach to a student population that is here to learn. The staff are committed to being at the leading edge of the discipline and to providing a first class learning and teaching experience for all students.

Our instructors have extensive experience in the HVAC or facilities management industry. They are here to teach to students that are here to learn, making for a cooperative and enthusiastic learning experience.

The Department provides a learning atmosphere conducive to the needs of the curricula. There are classrooms, laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment, and a computer lab that together allow students to make the important connections between theory, design and practice.

Our faculty members are active in the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASH RAE), on both the local and international level.
