Building Services Engineering

Overview

Engineering services play an integral part in modern-day living. This integrated masters course will help you develop the skills required for the safe and sustainable design, installation and operation of technical services within buildings.

The course enables you to build the expertise to analyse situations, data or existing knowledge to provide solutions to building services engineering problems. Using appropriate digital technologies and working with industry professionals from around the world, you will learn to communicate effectively with stakeholders and be able to promote low carbon solutions and sustainability in unfamiliar environments.

Working with others, you will develop the ability to apply logical reasoning as a tool for effective decision-making and will be capable of producing innovative, creative and intellectually challenging solutions to non-routine tasks. There will be opportunities to work on projects such as designing ‘clean room’ ventilation systems for the pharmaceutical industries, low energy lighting solutions for education establishments and intelligent building systems for international clients.

If you enjoy problem-solving, this course is the ideal stepping stone to gain employment in the building services engineering and related disciplines.

Your programme of study will include design project workshops, extracurricular seminars, field trips and building case studies, which are embedded throughout the course to help reinforce your learning process.

You will have access to events hosted by the University for the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers CIBSE, including talks from industry speakers and professional development sessions, offering you a great platform to network and learn from experts in the field.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

To study this course, you will require broadband internet connection with a speed of 2mbps and working speakers. You will need Windows 7 / Mac OSX 10.8 or above and have access to Chrome v63 or higher (recommended), Edge v42+, Firefox v57+ or Safari v6+. Java and Adobe Acrobat Reader will need to be enabled and you will need a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768.

    Other study-related expenses to consider: materials that you will need to complete your course such as books (whilst the library provides access to readings recommended for your modules, you may wish to purchase your own copies of some books); you can also make suggestions for books to be added to Library stock; placement costs (these may include travel expenses and living costs); student visas (international students only); printing, photocopying and stationery (you may need to pay for multiple copies of your dissertation or final project to be printed and bound); events associated with your course such as field trips; study abroad opportunities (travel costs and accommodation, visas and immunisations). Other costs could include academic conferences (travel costs) and professional-body membership (where applicable). The costs you will need to cover for graduation will include gown hire and guest tickets, and optional extras such as professional photography.

    As well as your mobile phone, you will also need access to a desktop computer and/or laptop to complete assignments and access university online services such as MyBeckett, your virtual learning environment. You can book and borrow AV equipment through the media equipment service accessed online via the student hub and located in the library at each campus. Equipment includes: 360 Cameras, iPads, GoPros, MacBooks, portable data projectors, portable projection screens, flipchart stands, remote presenters, digital cameras and camcorders, SLR cameras, speakers, microphones, headphones, headsets, tripods, digital audio recorders and PC/laptops (a laptop loans service is provided on campus in the library on both campuses). Student laptops are also available from the laptop lockers located in the libraries.

    This list is not exhaustive, costs are approximate and will vary depending on the choices you make during your course. Any rental, travel or living costs are also in addition to your course fees. If you choose to study via distance learning, you may not be able to access all of the facilities listed if you are not able to visit us on campus.

    Studying part-time gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace. Because of this, our tuition fees are calculated using credit points. Each module you study has a credit point value. Most modules have a credit point value of 20. The tuition fee for students entering in in 2020/21 on this course is £1541.60 for each 20 credit point module. For modules with a different credit point value their cost can be calculated by multiplying the credit value of the module by the cost per credit point of £77.08. The amount you will pay may increase each year in line with inflation.
