*Continuous assessment only

Each module will consist of 45 contact hours (this includes lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops, external visits, etc.).  The total contact (taught) hours of the course therefore will be 405 hours.  The Research Project will involve 180 working hours including direct supervision by a member of academic staff and/or an external supervisor.

 

Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, graduates  will be expected to have:

  • a comprehensive understanding of building services engineering;
  • a complete knowledge of those factors affecting human thermal comfort and air quality and in-depth understanding of how these influence the design of a building and its engineering systems to serve the occupants;
  • an understanding of energy usage of buildings;
  • a developed personal awareness of research in the field and specific knowledge within a chosen area, plus an understanding of how to research and of how to apply this skill to help develop the industry;
  • an ability to apply, and to critically appraise the results of, computing methods for the solution of problems with respect to building services engineering;
  • a knowledge of how to apply management techniques in specific chosen areas.
  • an understanding of how to use oral and written presentation skills for the promotion of solutions.
