The digital age has revolutionised how engineers operate. Gone are the days when you could work with just a calculator, a piece of paper and a design chart. You will develop your expertise using building information modelling software systems that include Revit and Navisworks.
Whether you graduated from our BSc (Hons) course or already work in industry as an associate engineer, we will equip you with the skills to play a leading role in the design, installation and management of building services.
Sustainability and the carbon reduction in buildings are a key issues around the world and these themes will be central to your work. You will learn about intelligent buildings and automation, and you will develop your knowledge of environmental science and the latest systems and innovation in energy conservation.
We will improve your technical engineering capabilities so that you can take responsibility for building services and mechanical installations. You will also focus on areas such as project responsibility, lighting design, heating, thermal comfort, air conditioning, cooling systems, acoustic comfort and electrical services.
Research Excellence Framework 2014
Research Excellence Framework 2014: our University's results for the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning unit, which it entered for the first time, were impressive with 37% of its research being rated world leading or internationally excellent.
You will have the opportunity to use building information modelling that includes packages such as Revit, Tekla and Vico, with a strong emphasis in design that meets environmental constraints.
You will be taught by staff who are practicing engineers and who will give you a global stance on building services engineering, drawing international comparisons with systems and operational solutions from around the world.
This course is also available via distance learning, offering you the flexibility to study at a time and pace that suits you.
There is a high demand around the world for building services engineers. They are needed in the construction of new buildings and in the maintenance and refurbishment of existing structures to ensure they are operational and energy efficient. Your course will provide you with the academic standing to apply for membership of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers and enable you to be involved in making key decisions in the industry.
