Engineering - Smart Building Technology Conc

Smart Building Technology Concentration

RCC’s Smart Building Technology Concentration (within the Engineering Degree) is designed to give students the education and skills needed to maintain smart buildings. Smart buildings deliver essential automated building services such as lighting, cooling and heating, and air quality, at the lowest cost and environmental impact over the building lifecycle.  In order for smart buildings to run at maximum efficiency, the buildings must be maintained by skilled, technology-savvy facilities managers and technicians, trained on digital automated maintenance systems. 

The City of Boston is filled with smart buildings; but there aren’t enough technicians trained on smart building technology to ensure that the buildings are running properly.  RCC’s Smart Building Technology Concentration will provide you with the skills and certifications needed to fill these in-demand jobs.
