One of the key attractions of building services engineering is the wide variety of roles on offer, from computer-based analysis and design work to overseeing installations on site and finding solutions to problems as part of a wider team of architects, clients and other professionals
UWE Bristol’s related undergraduate degree courses – Architecture and Environmental Engineering and Building Services Engineering – both have strong track records when it comes to their graduates’ employment in the industry. They also have full professional accreditation and provide firm foundations for the new Masters conversion route being launched this September.
The MSc Building Services Engineering award has won part of a £1.7m injection from the Higher Education Funding Council for England and will allow graduates in other subject areas to become skilled practitioners and move into in an industry hungry for creative talent.
So next time you walk into an amazing building, mentally switch off the lights. Then strip out the cooling, heating, ventilation, water supply, electricity and security systems and consider the difference good building services engineers make to health, wellbeing, productivity and energy efficiency.
