    Illinois Chapter of ASHRAE April 2011 Student Night Illinois Chapter of ASHRAE April 2011 Student Night Presentation Transcript

    • ASHRAE and Education Educating Tomorrow's ASHRAE Members William Ryan ASHRAE Member
    • Our Industry’s Issues in Education
      • Building Designs Have Become More Driven by Social Needs and More Complex
        • Energy Efficiency
        • Sustainability (LEED)
        • Higher Comfort Criteria
        • Wider Variety of Systems in a More Global HVAC Market
      • Greater Need for Engineers with Both Bachelor and More Advanced Degrees
    • From ASME – Issues in Education
      • growing complexity of engineered systems,
      • rapid emergence of new technologies,
      • globalization - driving force for change - increasing global competition,
      • declining financial support for state universities forcing bachelors to four years.
      • A Vision of the Future of Mechanical Engineering Education
      • ASME Council on Education
    • Our Local Path in Illinois
    • Meanwhile Education is Economically Threatened
      • “ Gentlemen, we have run out of money. It is time to start thinking.”
      • Sir Ernest Rutherford, Nobel Laureate (Chemistry)
      • Quote Used in Rising Above the Gathering
      • Storm"; Prepared for the Presidents of the
      • National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of
      • Engineering, and Institute of Medicine
    • Are Engineering Schools Teaching the Right Things?
      • Undergraduate Engineering Degrees
        • Under Increasing Pressure to Provide Truly 4 Year Programs
        • 120 Credit Programs
        • Still MUST Cover Theoretical Basics
        • Professional Electives Being Cut
        • Even the Basic HVAC Courses!
        • Ref: ASME, A Vision of the Future of Mechanical Engineering Education
    • Professional Degrees Professionals Need More than a 4 Year Bachelors
      • Professionals Need More than 4 Years
      • Engineering is Way Behind Other Fields
        • Some Fields Have Long Focused on an Advanced Professional Degree
          • Medicine/Dentistry/Law etc.
        • More Field are Now Taking Up this Pattern
          • K-12 Education (Teachers)
          • Nursing (Post BS Certifications Req. by Law)
        • Even Our Co-Workers
          • Architecture Requires 5 Years for AIA Certification (Which is Now Essential)
    • Professional Degrees Focusing On the “Practice” of Engineering
      • Vast Majority of ASHRAE Members are Practicing Engineers
        • Design, Energy Auditing, Energy Services
        • Serving Clients Directly
      • Post-Graduate Engineering Degrees Tend to Focus on Research and Theory
        • Engineering Research is Needed
        • BUT Most Engineers Go into Practice
        • Need for Practice - Based Masters
    • Professional Degrees Focusing On ASHRAE’s Needs
      • Demographic Dilemma
        • Experience Professionals in ASHRAE are Aging Toward Retirement (Me Too!)
        • Need an Accredited Process to Bring NEW Engineers to the Field Complete with Needed Skill Sets
          • Today - Design is Internationally Competitive
          • In-House Training is Too Expensive
    • Professional Degrees Focusing On ASHRAE’s Needed Skill Set
      • Engin. Basics More Needed than Ever
        • Design Issues-More Technically Advanced
      • What Else – Beyond the Bachelors
        • HVAC Basics AND
        • Computer Aided DESIGN (not Drafting), LEED, Energy Codes, Building Simulation, Auditing and Commissioning, HE Lighting, Energy Procurement, Demand Ventilation, Passive Design, Integrated Practice
        • and the List Goes On
    • These Building are Becoming Complex
    • These Building are Becoming Complex
    • These Building are Becoming Complex Requiring the highest tech new A&E processes …
    • These Building are Becoming Complex Requiring the highest tech new A&E processes …
    • UIC Masters of Energy Engineering Eight Courses Required for Completion
    • What Does Education Need from ASHRAE Members?
      • Clarity and Communications
        • What Do HVAC Design Firms WANT?
          • Universities Need Greater Input
        • An ASHRAE Certification??
          • AIA Does this Now
      • Seeing the Need
        • Firms Need to Understand the Need for College and Grad Students to Handle the New World of Building Technology
    • What Does Education Need from ASHRAE Members?
      • Financial Issues
        • Not an Appeal for Money
        • An Appeal for Student JOBS
          • INTERNSHIPS, EMPLOYMENT
          • Professional Programs Do Not Provide Graduate Student Support!
        • Graduate Energy & HVAC Students
          • Already have a BS Degree
          • Show Commitment to THIS Industry
    • Summary
      • What ASHRAE Needs from Academia
        • Graduates – Probably Masters Level – Equipped for the FUTURE HVAC Industry
      • What Academia Needs from ASHRAE
        • Greater Input from and Coordination with the A&E HVAC Industry
        • Student Internships and Sponsorship
        • Like the ASHRAE’s Scholarships Announced Tonight !!
    • Final Note on Education
      • “ We had more sports-exercise majors graduate than electrical engineering
      • graduates last year. If you want to become the massage capital of the world, you’re well on your way.”
      • Jeff Immelt, CEO, General Electric Co
