The Northeastern University Mechanical Contractors Association of America (NUMCAA) is a student group with a goal to enlighten studying engineers of the potential in this industry. Whether you’re intrigued by architecture, consulting, design engineering, project management, or equipment sales it can all be found here in mechanical contracting. The current energy crisis has created a new industry that is here to stay. That industry focuses on alterative, efficient, and sustainable forms of energy, or, in other words “green energy.” In order for these needs to be met the mechanical contracting industry must be flooded with intelligent and innovative thinkers. NUMCAA specializes in the area of energy efficiency in HVAC applications. Defined interests in the LEED rating system have also developed. Students involved in the group face great exposure to the current news, methods, and career opportunities in the mechanical contracting industry.
NUMCAA was the first place winner of the National Student Chapter Competition in 2009.
