This course is ideal for those who are already working in, or training for, a technician role in the areas of heating, BIM, ventilation and air conditioning. The course will provide you with a thorough understanding of the building services sector and you will explore analytical methods, management principles and building services science in depth. You will also gain a thorough understanding of design processes, principles and concepts.

Course description

The programme enables learners to build up a firm foundation of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles of building services science and technology, which will complement the training that the students have received as technicians within their own companies.

You will develop skills of analysis, synthesis, decision making and the ability to apply fundamental principles to the solution of problems likely to be encountered by the practising technician engineer, within the industry. You will also be able to use computing methods and new technologies with confidence over a range of building services applications and hence respond quickly, effectively and efficiently in a constantly changing technological environment.
