Program Description

Building services engineers are involved with virtually every aspect of a building’s interior environment. They design, install and maintain electrical and mechanical services - heating, cooling, lighting, water, lifts, and telecoms - and advise on issues of health and safety, security, sustainability and energy efficiency.

In short, they help buildings work, whether for residential, educational, commercial, industrial or cultural purposes.

Brunel's Building Services Engineering MSc gives graduates with engineering or technology backgrounds the technical, design and management skills they need to excel in this lucrative and multi-faceted profession.

You'll get a solid grounding in core subjects of heat transfer, energy conversion, acoustics, electrical services and lighting design as well as in the practicalities of building management, fire and smoke control, waste disposal and lifts and escalators.

Additionally, as there is a growing demand for a new generation of environmentally responsible buildings, you’ll also examine energy efficiency and sustainable design.

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Energy Institute (EI), which means your degree will put you on course to gain Chartered Engineer (CEng) status in the UK.

Throughout your studies you’ll have use of our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and 24-hour access to industry standard specialist software for engineering design at dedicated computer clusters on campus, so you’ll have the opportunity and equipment to explore ideas and tackle problems.

With the growing complexity of engineering services in modern buildings and the significance of energy conservation and emissions control, the role of the building services engineer is becoming increasingly important. Your Brunel engineering master’s will give you the technical, creative and managerial expertise that lead to excellent career opportunities.

Curriculum

Energy Conversion Technologies

This module aims to provide familiarisation with the principles and practice of modern energy conversion technologies, and to consider local energy conversion and utilisation in buildings.

Electrical Services and Lighting Design

This module aims to provide the essential appreciation and understanding of electrical services design in building services applications, with particular reference to safety requirements, and to explain and illustrate the principles of lighting design in building services applications.

Building Heat Transfer and Air Conditioning

This module aims to familiarise the students with principles of heat transfer, to develop the principles of building heat transfer, to examine the dynamic thermal behaviour of buildings, to reinforce and apply the principles of psychrometrics, and to provide an overview of the characteristics of air conditioning systems, design requirements and criteria for system selection.

Acoustics, Fire, Lifts and Drainage

This module aims to introduce the design principles of noise control, fire safety, public health and vertical transportation in buildings.

Building Management and Control Systems

This module aims to provide an appreciation of the theoretical basis of control and communication systems and their application to building services plant, in particular through the use of building management systems.

Design of Fluid Services and Heat Transfer Equipment

This module aims to introduce the principles and concepts underpinning the movement of fluids and the transfer of heat in building service equipment, and to develop and apply principles to typical and practical design problems in building services.

Building Services Design and Management

This module aims to provide experience in the evaluation of building internal environment and the effect of building services design solutions, to introduce the principles and expose students to the practice of engineering services design for buildings, and to develop an understanding of the way in which assets are managed within business.

Dissertation

The dissertation aims for students to complete and report on a soundly executed and constructed programme of investigation, analysis and research containing original work.
