    Overview

    Building service engineers play a critical role in the on- and off-site construction process and also in designing new systems and techniques that are driving the industry.

    Our degree gives you the confidence to not only interact with businesses involved in building services, but also with peers from other sectors to solve real-life problems using the innovative CDIO approach.

    We also ensure that there is considerable focus on your employability, and actively encourage work placements with the likes of EDF, Delphi and Southeast Water to help you on your path into the industry.

    You will use the pioneering CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement, Operate) approach to problem solve engineering issues. The CDIO approach is an international engineering education model, developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It allows you to learn in a practical, hands-on way to find creative, evaluated solutions to industry related engineering challenges. We are one of the only handful of universities in the UK to offer CDIO.

    Why Study Mechanical Engineering (Building Services)?

    As a qualified mechanical (building services) engineer, you could be designing and developing building services to be integrated into modular buildings. Working on large or small scale projects, you could design the processes and operations (manual, semi-automated and automated) that enable parts on the production line to be implemented and fitted.

    Our hands-on course will support, prepare and give you confidence to enter an engineering career with varied and exciting prospects. You will work on individual and group projects, gaining the knowledge and specialist technical and transferable skills you need to work as a mechanical engineer ensuring systems meet demand, are reliable, integrated and operate smoothly.
