The Meaing of Cooling and Heat Pump TechnologyThe fact that cooling and heat pump systems are installed in a accurate way is fundamental from an environmental point of view and for efficient energy management. The subject cooling and heat pump technology deals with system understanding of and process knowledge about cooling and heat pumps. It is by its nature partly scientific because mechanics and thermodynamics are included.
The teaching of cooling and heat pump technology shall purpose at the students developing skills in performing installation, operation, maintenance and service at cooling and heat pump systems. In teaching, students should be given the chance to develop system understanding and process knowledge. The teaching must also lead to students developing knowledge to be capable to work in a safe and environmentally conscious way in accordance with laws and another regulations that govern the business. Students will also be given the chance to develop knowledge about the handling of alternative refrigerants in cooling and heat pump systems.
Across laboratory work and experiments with laboratory equipment and across experiments on self-built cooling systems, students will be given the chance to develop a system understanding and ability to solve problems when installing and servicing cooling and heat pump systems. The teaching must be carried out so that the practical and theoretical knowledge are connected.
