Building Services Engineers bring buildings to life by building and installing a range of heating, cooling, lighting and other systems that make buildings pleasant places to work and live. This course prepares you to design, install and maintain building services. You will gain an understanding of how the professionals within the building industry need to work together to ensure that modern buildings are constructed economically, efficiently and in a sustainable way.WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?
This course has been designed with a large focus on your future employability. By choosing this course you will benefit from:
- accreditation at Chartered Engineer level by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) on behalf of the Engineering Council;
- links with several local and regional employers who have been involved with the development of the course and continue to contribute, ensuring that its content reflects current professional practice;
- academic staff who are active researchers and consultants in their field and have professional industrial experience which they bring in to their teaching;
- studying with a wide range of other professional disciplines in an integrated department of architecture, building and civil engineering, reflecting the modern interdisciplinary nature of construction projects;
- the opportunity to take up to a year gaining practical experience in a supervised work placement.
You will be equipped with the advanced skills and knowledge to take a specialist role in the design and/or construction team working on major projects.
In the first year you will learn the more fundamental topics of building design and the construction process that are essential to practitioners in all of the construction professions.HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?
You will find that your course has a range of learning opportunities, from lectures, seminars and tutorials to laboratories, workshops and studio sessions.
In addition, your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice.
You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.
The course makes use of online learning technology. Some modules use this extensively to allow you to interact online in discussions and to carry out online tests to assess your progress. Staff use online marking and assessment tools that allow us to speed up and improve feedback.
Building Services Engineering students have access to the latest versions of CAD software including 2D, 3D and visualisation software, BIM software, and building performance analysis programmes together with products you may already be familiar with such as SketchUp.
You will be supported by staff who have had a wide range of design experience in the application of these processes in industry. You will also use portable monitoring equipment, such as thermal imaging cameras, to undertake building performance assessments.HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?
