The Brunel Building Services Engineering Management MSc is designed to give professional engineers the technical, business and leadership skills they need to further their careers in the building services engineering sector.
Along with exploring the latest technological developments in the core subjects of heat transfer, energy conversion, electrical services, lighting design and health and safety, you’ll get a solid grounding in management essentials such as business operations and strategy, finance and accounting, facilities and contract management, and people management.
The course is taught as a three-year distance learning programme, which enables you to carry on working while building new skills in your own time and at your own pace.

Having completed an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering at another UK university, I enrolled onto the MSc course in Building Services Engineering (BSE) at Brunel in September 2011. After an exciting and challenging year here, I successfully completed my MSc degree.
The school of Engineering and Designhas an excellence reputation in providing a comprehensive suite of programmes to suit the needs of the industry and professions, in the areas of building engineering, natural environment and sustainability.
As soon as I joined the MSc course, it was apparent that I had entered a dynamic and vibrant environment, with academics spanning all levels, from research students to research lecturers, readers and professors. The opportunities to enrich my engineering knowledge and professional development were in front of me and I took the opportunity as soon as possible.
The MSc course was challenging; even with its ups and downs on a daily basis, it was exciting to be part of a programme where drawbacks became my motivation to continue and complete the course. Without the guidance of my lecturers, professors, lab staff and interesting conversations with fellow students, I would not have progressed so well.
My dissertation topic was an investigation into the performance of a two-phase closed thermosyphon. I started the literature review and set up a test rig in mid-May and completed the project at the end of August; these were the best four months of my academic life. A daily discussion with my supervisor and the laboratory staff gave me a great opportunity to learn and understand thermodynamic principles and gain experience in real situations.
When I finished the dissertation my supervisor granted me the great opportunity to continue my studies with a PhD. It is an honour to be part of the Mechanical Engineering Department and I accepted the offer without hesitation.
I am confident that the long established history and partnership with industry in the UK and overseas would support my research during the upcoming years. Given that the University has one of the world’s leading groups in the area of building services, and offers a world-class research environment, I am confident that I will concentrate fully on my research.
Brunel University is my past and my future and I’m happy to be a part of it. I would highly recommend postgraduate studies in Building Services Engineering at Brunel to any prospective student.
