Introduction

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.

One of the main distinctive features of this programme is that the student will get a British award from the University of the West England, Bristol, UK, (recognized worldwide) while studying in Muscat.

What you will be studying?

At the beginning of the programme, you will study Mathematics for Civil and Environmental Engineering, Engineering Principles (Building Engineering), Construction Technology and Services, Law, Economics and Management, Building Science. As you progress, Building Services Applications, Energy Transformations, Application of Mathematics in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Procurement and Contract Practice, Sustainability and Energy Simulations, Low Carbon Building Services, Interactive Systems and Comfort Control subjects are taught. Alongside, you will also develop professional skills in project planning, group work and communication. Throughout the programme, you will apply the acquired knowledge through practical laboratory work using our state-of- the-art lab facilities. you will get an inside track on the industry through factory tours and professional briefings from leading organisations. In the final year, you will also take a design project and a dissertation module to demonstrate the knowledge gained by you in the programme.

Where can it take you?

You could find graduate opportunities with a multinational or with a smaller private practice. Careers paths include consultancy, design engineering, specialist installation and maintenance contracting, and facilities or property management.
