The Engineering Office supports the University's academic mission by enhancing the quality of the engineered systems on campus. These systems include the mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems within buildings, the various University-owned campus utility systems as well as public utility systems serving the campus.
To support this mission, the Engineering Office provides professional engineering support and technical coordination to Facilities Management offices as well as to other University Departments in areas such as campus-wide project planning, design, construction and operations. Professional engineering support includes:
- Development and updates to Facilities Design Guidelines
- Master Planning and Design of Campus Site Utilities systems
- Participation in Project Design reviews for new building and Renovation projects
- Engineering analysis and monitoring of the various campus utility and building systems in the support of the Energy, Operations and Maintenance groups

Campus Metering System:
The Engineering Office is setting up and operating a web-based, campus-wide metering system for status monitoring and metering of electrical consumption for most buildings. In addition, this system is also being configured to monitor flow rates and energy consumption of high temperature hot water, chilled water and natural gas utilities for selected buildings. Limited access to the metering system is provided via the Campus Metering System.
