ASHRAE seeks to educate students about the HVAC (heating, ventilating and air-conditioning) industry and promote the goals of ASHRAE. The branch typically has meetings every other week during the quarter. We also organize field trips and arrange guest speakers. Every year the student branch organizes field trips to Northern California in the fall and Southern California in the spring. We typically try to visit a design/build company, a consulting engineering office, a job site, and a manufacturing facility or sales engineering office.
