We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Building services engineers are involved with virtually every aspect of a building’s interior environment. They design, install and maintain electrical and mechanical services - heating, cooling, lighting, water, lifts, and telecoms - and advise on issues of health and safety, security, sustainability and energy efficiency.
In short, they help buildings work, whether for residential, educational, commercial, industrial or cultural purposes.
Brunel's Building Services Engineering MSc gives graduates with engineering or technology backgrounds the technical, design and management skills they need to excel in this lucrative and multi-faceted profession.
You'll get a solid grounding in core subjects of heat transfer, energy conversion, acoustics, electrical services and lighting design

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.
