Accredited by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers CIBSE and the Energy Institute EI, the building services masters degree is a great choice for any engineering graduate looking to take their career to the next level and become a Chartered Building Services Engineer.
The Building Services Engineering masters receives global recognition and graduates have enjoyed career success with construction firms around the world.
The building services engineering profession is a vibrant and important component of both the construction and engineering sectors of industry. The MSc Building Services Engineering is aimed at engineering graduates to enable them to progress towards full chartered (CEng) status.
There is a strong demand for good quality chartered building services engineers who have the wide and multi-disciplinary knowledge that enables them to operate effectively on projects involving diverse technical challenges. Engineers now require a period of postgraduate study after achieving an Honours degree on an accredited BEng programme before they can become eligible for chartered (CEng) status. The MSc Building Services Engineering programme has been designed primarily as a period of further learning to follow an honours degree in building services engineering or environmental engineering.
The programme offers you the opportunity to broaden your knowledge and experience of all technical aspects of building services design as well as providing an understanding of building management.
Various methods are used to assess the modules depending on the nature of the module. These include written examination, course work, and oral presentation. Normally there is more than one assessment component in each module.
The programme is approved by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Energy Institute. The MSc and a suitable accredited BEng (Hons) degree will together form the educational base for full CEng status.
The design of mechanical and electrical services for buildings of all types is a typical job profile and is carried out within mechanical and electrical design consultancies or within design-and-build construction companies.
Management of building facilities is another common employment destination, or in some cases the management of merchant or naval shipping and associated installations. Equipment manufacturers offer design and marketing opportunities.
Installation and commissioning of equipment and systems also offers technical and management opportunities.
