The Future of HVAC: MHIAA Partners With Monash University

Training the Next Generation of HVAC Experts Surveys conducted by the Australian Industry Standards (AIS) revealed that the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) industry is one of the key industries that will face several challenges in the coming years as the industry transforms with new technology, new systems and sustainability as a key focus.
