    Smile Building Automation Education

    Hello

    I have a question about education. I am about to graduate with an advanced diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology - Control Systems from Seneca College and I want to get into the building automation field, something along the lines of controller programmer or integrator. What kind of additional education would I need? Would a certificate or diploma in HVAC or Building Environmental Systems suffice?

    Thank you.

    But a degree in electronics or engineering is a plus according to educational requirements on job posts I've see
