The course provides a practitioner perspective with which we analyze building energy requirements in terms of the external environment and internal space, and the effect on energy resources. We consider the principles and analyze associated building engineering systems to understand control, simulation, and modeling techniques.
As well as the core engineering skills, appropriate areas of management and research methods are studied to provide a balanced foundation for the specialist units. The MSc dissertation provides an opportunity to develop further research skills by application to problems that require in-depth and innovative thinking.
- Thermal environment, acoustics, and lighting
- Heating and energy in buildings
- Energy resource and use analysis
- Electrical power
- Sustainable refrigeration
- Ventilation and air conditioning
- Energy engineering project
Employment prospects are excellent. Construction and engineering activity is expected to accelerate in the UK, Europe and worldwide over the next 20 years and demand for building services engineers continues to outstrip supply.
Graduate success stories
Successful students enter various roles including building services design, management of construction projects, and operation of complex installations.
The course is fully accredited by Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Energy Institute as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) undergraduate degree. Potential students are advised to check directly with the CIBSE or EI as to the validity of their first degree for a CEng route.
Accredited on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.
We are the University of the Year for Graduate Employment - The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018.
At LSBU, we want to set you up for a successful career. During your studies – and for two years after you graduate – you’ll have access to our Employability Service, which includes:
- An online board where you can see a wide range of placements: part-time, full-time or voluntary. You can also drop in to see our Job Shop advisers, who are always available to help you take the next step in your search.
- Our Careers Gym offering group workshops on CVs, interview techniques and finding work experience, as well as regular presentations from employers across a range of sectors.
Our Student Enterprise team can also help you start your own business and develop valuable entrepreneurial skills.
The course is designed for students with undergraduate degrees in mechanical, electrical or chemical engineering, or other relevant engineering disciplines, and seek to develop specialized skills in building services engineering to enter this industry.
- A BEng (Hons) degree in an appropriate discipline. Normally upper second class would be considered a minimum, but the lower class may be acceptable depending on experience.
- Cognate degrees in appropriate disciplines (e.g. physics, chemistry or mathematics) will be accepted provided the candidate demonstrates some knowledge of building services engineering.
- Other qualifications may be accepted depending on age and experience. This category would normally be reserved for mature candidates who have had several years experience in the building services industry.
- For applicants whose first language is not English, an IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent is required.
All modules are subject to change by the university and may differ from the modules you are offered during your studies.
