A BMS Engineer
maintains the Building Management Systems which control large buildings.
I work in a cluster of buildings in central London totalling approximately 600,000 Square feet of Office, for which I maintain the Air-conditioning and lighting control systems. I work with a team of 25 mechanical and electrical engineers (because the control systems aren't the only thing s that go wrong), each of whom are vastly overqualified for the Janitor position you found.
Happily for me the Lighting control systems are all made by the same manufacturer, Simmtronic
, The BMS systems sadly are from a variety of manufacturers and use a variety of communications protocols, Lonworks, BACNet, TCP/IP and each has it's own programming language and tools.
Bwah! Ha ha!
You are one of the few people who answer everything.
Your signature line is true then. You really are an engineer.
I try to provide a full and helpful answer to any topic, someone who has posted a question could become frustrated if no one answers their query. Learning new things helps keep my mind active so If it's an interesting question I can often quickly find at least a partial answer.
I like to think that I'm an engineer (BMS engineer is my Job title) although I don't have a degree, just lots of practical experience (20 years since I finished my Apprenticeship) and a bucket load of manufacturers courses.
