You will find that your course has a range of learning opportunities, from lectures, seminars and tutorials to laboratories, workshops and studio sessions.
In addition, your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice.
You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.
The course makes use of online learning technology. Some modules use this extensively to allow you to interact online in discussions and to carry out online tests to assess your progress. Staff use online marking and assessment tools that allow us to speed up and improve feedback.
Building Services Engineering students have access to the latest versions of CAD software including 2D, 3D and visualisation software, BIM software, and building performance analysis programmes together with products you may already be familiar with such as SketchUp.
You will be supported by staff who have had a wide range of design experience in the application of these processes in industry. You will also use portable monitoring equipment, such as thermal imaging cameras, to undertake building performance assessments.
