Course summary

Overview

Our Building Services Engineering course considers low carbon building design and the integration of renewable energy systems into buildings. It deals with services engineering issues, building the skills required to cope with the challenges in the working environment. As a conversion course, it gives you a good foundation for launching, or accelerating, a career as a Building Services Engineer – or technical sustainability consultant.

The Building Services Engineering course is flexible and aimed at graduates with engineering degrees or a background in construction. Courses are taught by experts in their fields, making sure that teaching content reflects cutting-edge knowledge in the industry. Our active Industry Advisory panel also includes senior construction professionals from renowned local and global consultants and contractors.

Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design

Our Architectural Engineering courses are delivered by the Royal Academy of Engineering Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design. This is one of four such Centres established at UK universities that jointly form a national network to demonstrate and exchange best practice in teaching and research for the sustainable built environment. The Centre also ensures graduates from our courses will be used to working within an inter-disciplinary environment involving architecture, engineering and construction.

Accreditation

Our MSc Building Services Engineering has been accredited by Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Energy Institute (EI) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.

Career

There is an increasing need for architects, engineers, facilities managers, quantity surveyors and other construction professionals who understand the need to mitigate against future carbon emissions, and to adapt to future climate threats and predictions.

Professionals who understand design lifecycles and who can make appropriate material and design decisions which meet the needs of building users now, but also preserve resources for future generations, are sought in every industry sector. The ability to save money, improve sustainability and lower organisational impact is critical. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards during this course.
