Building services engineers are responsible for the mechanical and electrical systems that contribute to people's comfort, health and productivity. They provide analytic and design skills to buildings of all scales and levels of complexity, from residential and commercial, to industrial and cultural.
With greater efficiency constantly being sought in the use of energy and materials (for environmental and economic reasons) there is a growing demand for a new generation of environmentally responsible buildings.
Currently however, the field of architecture and engineering is facing a deficit of people with the right type of expertise.
In response, this course has been created to provide a route through which STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) graduates (or people with relevant experience) can align their skills with the needs of the profession.
Building on your experience
The MSc Building Services Engineering is suitable for graduates with degrees in technological subjects (such as mechanical, aeronautical, civil and automotive engineering), or maths or science graduates.
Graduates of the pure sciences will be recommended to enter the MSc course through the pathway offering some preparatory grounding in relevant technical subjects.
In developing the skills to practice as a building services professional, you will learn about the relevant technologies and methods of the discipline, and will be introduced to themes related to management and professional conduct within an engineering context.
Learning from industry
Input from industry practitioners as well as other interdisciplinary professionals is a key part of the course. Along with field trips to working sites, this will help you develop an understanding of how to apply the concepts and principles to real world situations and projects.
Through project work, group work, hands-on practice and theory, you will gain the skills needed to make a positive impact on the places where people live, study and work.
