This programme, which has been developed in partnership with practising professionals, helps you gain the skills required to design and integrate complex building engineering systems within an aesthetically pleasing building envelope, such that internal environmental conditions can be closely controlled and energy use is minimised. Building services engineering areas considered throughout the programme include energy efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, alongside electrical installations and lighting design.
In your first year you will be introduced to the basic underpinning engineering, scientific and mathematical principles, plus architectural and design philosophies. The technology focus at this point applies mainly to the domestic sector.
In the second year the knowledge attained in the first year is extended to encompass commercial buildings, both new and refurbished, and is applied to the design of systems for complex buildings.
The third year is an optional placement year and students will be able to complete a period of work experience with a suitable employer.
The final year of the BEng course extends students' learning on to the modelling and design of buildings, and the simulation of building services systems within complex buildings. In addition you will be exposed to real, vocationally relevant project work with a focus on the promotion of sustainability. Students are also given the opportunity to carry out research in an area that they find particularly interesting.
Projects are integrated at all levels of the degree, with materials and supervision provided by employers so you can replicate real-life scenarios in your work.
Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal Academic Framework review, so may be subject to change. Students will be required to undertake modules that the University designates as core and will have a choice of designated option modules. Additionally, option modules may be offered subject to meeting minimum student numbers.
Please see the programme specification document for further details on this course.
Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose.
All students perform differently depending on how they are assessed which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. These include exams (open and closed book), coursework (projects, laboratory and technical reports) and oral presentations. Your tutors will give prompt and constructive feedback via Canvas (our virtual learning environment), face-to-face or in writing. This will help you to identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.
