42-hrs M&E CPD Bridging Course on Building Services Engineering

(English Version only)

Purpose of Bridging Tutorial Session

The Courses BEng (H) Building Services Engineering and BSc (H) Building Services Engineering mainly recruit students from Building Services Engineering, or equivalent disciplines.  However, the courses also recruit students from Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or relevant disciplines in the industry.

Students are supposed to have comprehensive knowledge of Building Services Engineering in “System” and “Design” before enrolling into the courses.  Hence, AIBE will provide bridging tutorial sessions to strengthen your basic knowledge mainly in electrical, mechanical and HVAC so that you can be well prepared for your coming study.
