College of Business (WBUAD)
Facilities Mechanical and Electrical Systems
This course is an introduction to the basics of Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection systems (MEP). This includes the installation of these systems in buildings, resources for estimating and basic plan reading of the components of MEP systems in construction documents.

After completing this course, the student will acquire a working knowledge of mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in buildings. The student will be able to read basic mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) plans, describe basic MEP configurations in buildings and perform basic cost estimates of MEP installations.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:1. Describe building MEP systems.2. Schedule the maintenance of building MEP systems.3. Plan modifications to building MEP systems.4. Develop maintenance contract specifications, choose competent MEP contractors and negotiate service agreements.5. Monitor usage and performance of building MEP systems.6. Assess building MEP systems.7. Ensure compliance with codes, regulations, policies and standards with regard to building MEP systems.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
