Course content

With global energy consumption being strongly influenced by the design and operation of buildings this programme is designed to combine building services engineering knowledge with specific energy considerations in their design.

Areas studied include low energy building design, designing for suitable indoor air quality and thermal comfort, state-of-the-art control systems, and the design of building heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems.

You’ll have access to our vast range of experimental facilities including: a fully controllable environmental chamber; sophisticated thermal and breathing manikins; an indoor solar simulator; a ‘darkroom’ facility to carry out optical and high dynamic range measurements; and full-scale houses for pressure testing and studying innovative heating and control strategies.
