The student chapter at the University of New Hampshire at Manchester is hosted by the Engineering Technology Program. Students in the Engineering Technology Program are pursuing a BS degree and take HVAC 1 and HVAC 2, four credit lab courses that cover the fundamentals of HAVC system design and operation. A background in thermodynamics and heat transfer is required for these courses. Students in HVAC 1 are required to join ASHRAE as student members and are encouraged to purchase the fundamentals handbook as a reference for the course. Students in HVAC 2 are required to participate in the Granite State chapter’s poster session and be judged by a panel of volunteers from the chapter. ASHRAE members are invited to give guest lectures on timely topics being covered in the courses.

The faculty advisor for the UNHM student chapter is R. Draper
