Bennet Levine, R&D Manager at Contemporary Controls (second from right), observes College of DuPage students Miles Szot (Lemont, left) and Mike Mellenthin (West Chicago) work with heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration control systems from Contemporary Controls. Based in Downers Grove, Contemporary Controls donated more than $8,000 in equipment to the College’s HVACR program in support of the new Building Automation Systems certificate. Watching his students at work is COD HVACR Program Coordinator Bob Clark.

The new certificate program prepares students for a growing field that merges traditional HVACR knowledge with computer and IT skills. The program is aimed at students who want entry-level positions as building controls technicians and current building stationary operating engineers who want to upgrade their skills and credentials.
