A survey of the environmental control methods and support systems used in contemporary buildings. Emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of each system and design of simple systems, and how they relate to energy utilization and conservation in building design. Students will use an energy modeling software to study the design of a building. Economic comparisons and cost/benefit ratios are also studied. (Prerequisite: PHYS 135C) Note: course not required of students in Architectural Engineering Technology Civil Focus.
