INTRODUCTION

Join the next generation of senior civil and structural engineering experts. Embrace a well paid, intensive yet enjoyable career by taking this comprehensive and practical course. It is delivered over 24 months by live distance learning and presented by some of the leading civil and structural engineering instructors in the world today.

Civil and structural engineering encompasses a range of disciplines, including road, rail and drainage systems, dams, harbours, bridges, buildings and other structures. Civil and structural designers and drafters plan, design, develop and manage construction and repair projects.

This qualification develops your skills and knowledge in the design and drafting of engineering plans to recognised standards. You will learn about different areas of civil engineering, including construction, project management, design and testing. You will also learn about the design and drafting of concrete, steelwork, roads and pipes, as well as hydrology, stormwater drainage and foundations.

While it is essential that those who work in the supervisory or management levels of this discipline have a firm understanding of drafting and planning principles, this qualification goes much further. To be effective on the job, you will need to know how to apply knowledge of fundamental civil and structural engineering concepts, including geotechnical engineering, hydraulic engineering, engineering maths, and properties of materials. Throughout the program this subject matter will be placed into the context of engineering management. Our aim is to ensure that you are an effective, knowledgeable and skilled supervisor or manager, someone who can work beyond a “plan and design” brief to ensure that a project is delivered effectively.
This qualification aims to provide theoretical and practical education and training such that graduates may gain employment at the engineering associate (“paraprofessional”) level within the building and construction industry.

There are eight threads in the course to give you maximum, practical coverage. These threads comprise environmental issues, engineering technologies, drawing, 2D and 3D CAD design, building materials, civil and structural sub-disciplines (roads, steel, concrete, pavement, drainage, soil, water supply, sewerage), construction sites and engineering management.

This program avoids too much emphasis on theory. This is rarely needed in the real world of industry where time is short and immediate results, with hard-hitting and useful know-how, are required as a minimal requirement. The instructors presenting this advanced diploma are highly experienced engineers from industry who have done the hard yards and worked in the civil and structural areas. The format of presentation — live, interactive distance learning with the use of remote learning technologies — means that you can hit the ground running and be of immediate benefit to your company or future employer.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Anyone who wants to gain a solid working knowledge of the key elements of civil and structural engineering that can be applied at the supervisory and paraprofessional level. See “Entrance Requirements”

About the course

This course is aimed at professional engineers aspiring to increased management responsibility in the building services sector or who have reached a stage in their careers when they are carrying increasing management responsibility.

It caters to the worldwide demand for building services engineering managers who have a sound knowledge of engineering and management principles – and the ability to apply this knowledge to complex situations.

Management modules cover engineering finance and accounting, people management, business organisation and facilities and contract management.

Aims

Building Service Engineers help buildings to deliver on their potential by working with architects and construction engineers to produce buildings that offer the functionality and comfort we expect, with the minimum impact on our environment. They design the lighting appropriate for the space, the heating, cooling, ventilation and all systems that ensure comfort, health and safety in all types of buildings, residential commercial and industrial.

Building services engineering is an interdisciplinary profession. It involves the specification, design, installation and management of all the engineering services associated with the built environment.

With the growing complexity of engineering services in modern buildings and the significance of energy conservation and pollution control, the role of the building services engineer is becoming increasingly important.

As an interdisciplinary profession that involves the specification, design, installation and management of all the engineering services associated with the built environment, comfort and function also need to be combined – which calls for engineers with a wide range of knowledge and skills.

This MSc programme is for:

Recent engineering and technology graduates, moving into building services and related disciplines.
Established engineers and technologists, working in building services and faced with the challenge of new areas of responsibility.
Engineers who want to develop technical understanding and expertise across the multi-disciplines of building services engineering.
Managers and designers, who need to broaden their experience and require updating.
Lecturers in higher education, moving into or requiring updating in building services engineering.
Others with engineering and technology backgrounds, perhaps working in advisory or consultancy roles, who wish to familiarise themselves with building services engineering. However, choice of course will be dependent upon the type and extent of knowledge and skills required.

Mission and goals

The Programme, entirely offered in English, prepares high-level professionals that can work in the field of the built environment, and in particular of high energy performance, low environmental impact buildings, thanks to a multi-disciplinary training and to the acquisition of specialist engineering skills.

The Programme offers two tracks with specific characteristics:
- Architectural Engineering (offered in Lecco), giving students the ability to manage – and take part in – the integrated design process of complex construction projects;
- Building Engineering (offered in Milano Leonardo), giving students the ability to design, model and predict the physical, mechanical, and energy behaviour of complex building components and systems, services and structures.

Career opportunities

The Building and Architectural Engineer is a professional that can effectively practice in complex, multi-disciplinary and multi-scale projects, and in particular in the following fields:
- design of complex new buildings, in particular in the areas of technology, structures, energy efficiency and environmental quality;

- refurbishment and retrofit of existing buildings, in particular in the areas of technology, energy upgrade and structural consolidation;

- management of the multi-disciplinary, multi-scalar design process, with the help of specific design and information tools;

- technological innovation of building components and systems;

- advanced performance modelling of complex building components and systems, services and structures;

- management of global performances, with the goal of reducing the environmental impact of buildings.

Presentation

See http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/uploads/media/Architectural_Engineering_Lecco.pdf
This track of the Master of Science in Building and Architectural Engineering trains Architectural Engineers that can manage and take part in the integrated design process of complex construction projects. An interdisciplinary approach to design and construction, and the related teamwork, are widely recognized as the essential tools to deliver buildings with high performances, reliable sustainability credentials, and a balanced life cycle cost.
The Architectural Engineer is a professional ready to work in complex, multidisciplinary and multi-scalar projects. The programme trains students through two parallel approaches:
- Giving them the tools, from the fields of both engineering and architecture, to be
effective members of design teams;
- Involving them in integrated studios where they can apply the principles of
integrated design to specific projects.

The programme prepares students to approach, among others, the fields of multiscale energy-efficient design, innovative construction technology and refurbishment of existing buildings, with a strong focus on the different scales of intervention (from the city and territory to the building and construction components). The programme is also strongly rooted in the European and Italian tradition which has created cities and buildings celebrated worldwide.
