BMS Site Migration to New Niagara N4 Infrastructure

Project Overview

This project will allow the student to experience and interact with current Building Management System infrastructure firsthand and develop early core BMS programming skills and techniques. The project requires the student to work with our lead BMS programmers to migrate old legacy BMS systems over to the latest Niagara N4 BMS infrastructure. During this project, the student will learn basic BMS programming techniques, BMS graphic UI development, and networking skills. Basic N4 training will be given during the duration of this project. 

A laptop will be provided during the duration of this project.

Ideal Student

The student should be interested in mechanical building infrastructure such as chiller and boiler plants. They should be able to understand basic mechanical system sequences such as hydronic and steam applications, chiller plants, and dual temperature loops. The student should be able to easily navigate around a computer, have a functional working knowledge of Windows including understanding navigation, locating files, folder structures, file paths, browser basics, and HTML 5. An ideal student for this project is a student looking to pursue a career in mechanical engineering focusing on building mechanical system sequences and programming.


The student receives training on an industry-leading skill in BMS programming. They will develop skills to navigate around the Niagara BMS framework, review advanced mechanical sequences, develop HTML 5 based UI building, and networking skills such as VPN routing to cloud-based servers.
