Course content

The world is recognising that buildings need to consume less energy in the future – and this course develops your building services engineering knowledge with a focus on sustainable design.

You will learn about renewable energy technologies, efficient ventilation, air conditioning and energy conversion technologies in the programme, and can choose from a broad range of dissertation topics.

The era of zero emission building is within grasping distance of the mass construction industry – creating a huge demand for specialists with the skills to design and project manage effectively.

The aim of this programme is to respond to the worldwide demand for building services engineers and managers who have a sound knowledge of engineering principles and the ability to apply this knowledge to the complex situations prevailing within the building services industry.

The MSc is accredited by CIBSE, the IMechE and the Energy Institute and this will provide a route to Chartered Engineer status in the UK.

The course is available on either a one-year, full-time or three-to-five-year, distance-learning basis.
