Buildings are becoming ever more complex and there is a high demand for technically inspired graduates who understand new technologies. Building services professionals are at the forefront of innovation in architectural engineering, sustainability, energy efficiency, intelligent buildings and the latest building information modelling (BIM) software. Engineers who pursue a professional career in building services can expect to become involved in a broad range of activities demanding not only a progressive approach to technical innovation, but also a clear understanding of the operational and commercial aspects of the construction industry and the contextual responsibilities to society and the environment. The aim of the programme is to provide an outstanding educational experience that will prepare graduates for related careers in the field of building services engineering, giving them the requisite knowledge, skills, creativity and enthusiasm to make a meaningful contribution to their profession.
