What does a ventilation system engineer do?
Ventilation system engineers construct and assemble ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
In the workshop, they manufacture ventilation elements in line with production plans. They are also well-versed in all fine sheet and connection profile work. They apply connection, joining and fastening techniques such as welding, bolting and riveting in a professional manner, using special tools and machines to do so. With the application of assembly plans, they install the ventilation and air-conditioning systems on the construction site. They determine the precise locations of cables, appliances, ducts and equipment based on these plans. They assemble air-conditioning equipment, fittings and control equipment along with the related ducts and pipes. Alongside assembly, their tasks include the repair of air-conditioning systems.
