Low Energy Building Services Engineering
This programme is aimed at graduates of building services engineering and other science and engineering disciplines who wish to extend their technical expertise in the field of building services engineering. With energy consumption within the design and operation of buildings becoming an ever increasingly important factor this programme is designed to combine building services engineering knowledge with specific energy considerations in their design. Modules are taught by world leading experts in the field whose research feeds directly into the programme content ensuring it is informed by the latest cutting edge research. Distinctive features of the programme include low energy building design, designing for suitable indoor air quality and thermal comfort, state of the art control systems, and the design of building heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems. The programme is accredited for further learning for CEng and professional membership by the Energy Institute and CIBSE.
Upper 2nd Class Honours degree in engineering, science, mathematics, or discipline related to building services engineering. Other qualifications supplemented with relevant industrial experience are also considered. International students require an English language score of IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.
Core modules: thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid flow; thermal comfort and indoor air quality; building thermal loads and systems; building energy supply systems; building control and commissioning; concept design; low carbon building design; advanced thermal modelling; research methodology; postgraduate research project.
