Course Features

Introduction to the Course

The BSc (Hons) Building Services Engineering (top-up) is a part-time course concerned with the study of building services design set in the context of energy efficiency and the carbon reduction agenda.

The application of Building Services Engineering is multi-disciplinary and it is envisaged that, as in the professional world, graduates will carry out project work, which will facilitate dialogue with other members of the design and management teams. It is the development of novel technological and engineering solutions in meeting the carbon reduction agenda within the often contradictory constraints of economy and the law, which contribute to the academic challenge of the course.

As a result the course is characterised by parallel themes of management and project work. The management theme will develop students’ capabilities to take a managerial role in the field of Building Services Engineering, whilst the project modules will provide scope for integrative studies on practical engineering and design situations.
