Building services engineering encompasses heating, lighting, power, lifts, air conditioning and other services, each one being a self-contained discipline. Within a project, each of these disciplines will have their own priorities and targets. As project manager, you would not only manage and liaise with the various engineering trades involved, you would also work closely with builders, architects, structural engineers, civil engineers, contractors and lawyers to ensure that all of the different technologies merge into one functional, efficient building - and all within the constraints of budget, time and quality. Today, buildings account for nearly half of the total carbon released into the atmosphere from fossil fuels, so you would be tackling the challenge of climate change by translating design ideas into practical, operational - and low carbon - engineering systems. This is a professional role with great responsibility in high value contractual situations. The course will give you the opportunity to develop these high levels of proficiency through challenging theoretical and practical work, including the option to do a year’s paid work experience with a building services engineering consultant or contractor (subject to finding a suitable placement).
