BMS engineers

BMS engineers apply building management systems to routinely monitor the operation of mechanical equipment, identify malfunctions in equipment, investigate malfunctions detected by BMS, recommend solutions, and take corrective action.

Engineering assistants

Engineering assistants provide technical assistance by preparing designs and estimates as well as coordinating and inspecting work performed by outside contractors or consultants.

Mechanical maintenance assistants

Mechanical maintenance assistants check HVAC filters and perform filter changes, including the delivery of new filters and disposal of old filters, perform cleaning of plenums and coils, and perform visual checks and report any maintenance and/or operations concerns that may have been observed.


Millwrights install, maintain, inspect, and repair university-wide machinery and equipment. Millwrights work to ensure proper functioning of university equipment to minimize downtime and extend equipment lifespan, and to ensure safe and efficient operating conditions at all times.

Operating engineers

Operating engineers perform checks, routine maintenance, and operation of pumps, fans, compressors, steam expansion joints, high pressure steam traps, and associated mechanical equipment and systems on campus.

Refrigeration mechanics

Refrigeration mechanics are responsible for the operation and maintenance of: campus-wide mechanical, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and refrigeration systems; environmental chambers; heat recovery systems; data centre cooling systems; chilled water cooling systems; and other related equipment. Refrigeration mechanics work to ensure the most efficient and optimal performance of HVAC and refrigeration systems, minimize equipment downtime, and maintain and extend equipment service life.
