Systems Engineering

The Systems Engineering group consists of Systems Control Center, Metering & Billing, and general information technology for the department.

Systems Control Center

The Systems Control Center is a 24X7 operation providing monitoring of building fire, HVAC, and other services, as well as work reception functions during off-hours and emergency dispatch and response services. Staffed with highly trained operators, the center monitors approximately 100,000 building system points including critical alarm points, and receives more than 16,000 facility related calls each year ranging from routine equipment requests to facility emergencies such as fire, floods, or elevator entrapments.

Metering & Billing

The Metering & Billing team measures and collects energy management data and maintains the utility metering systems throughout the University. The team works closely with the Automation Services team that maintains the building automation systems (BAS). Energy management and sustainability goals are supported through the use of 1,118 physical meters that measure and record commodity consumption. Nearly 76 percent of meters are connected to the BAS allowing continuous reading and trend recording without the need to physically visit and read each month. The collected data is used for profiling loads, identifying metering anomalies, and troubleshooting.
