Building Automation

Program Overview

Building automation is the automatic centralized control of a building's heating, ventilation and air conditioning, lighting and other systems through a building management system or building automation system (BAS). The objectives of building automation are improved occupant comfort, efficient operation of building systems, reduction in energy consumption and operating costs, and improved life cycle of utilities.

Complete autonomous control of an entire facility is the goal that any modern automation system attempts to achieve. Automation systems reduce building energy and maintenance costs compared to a non-controlled building. Typically they are financed through energy and insurance savings and other savings associated with pre-emptive maintenance and quick detection of issues. The Graduate Management Trainee Program (GMTP) in Building Automation trains engineers who will be responsible for system design, installation and technical support for building automation systems involving environment control, safety, security and communication.
