|Course Description||This course aims to provide learners with the management skills and technical knowledge associated with the diverse and challenging building services engineering industry. The programme aims to equip the learners with the necessary design and evaluation techniques to make professional judgements on technological, social and ethical issues during planning and the execution of building services projects.
Environmental and technical issues are covered within specialist units designed for this programme. Learners are also expected to be more independent, with a significant amount of research and self-study, directed both within and outside the Institute environment.
|Assessment||Modules will be assessed by means of formative and summative assessments. Assessments will consist of coursework in written form, practical tasks and time-constrained tests. Additionally, learners will be assessed on their dissertation.|
|Programme Learning Outcomes||1. Examine and coordinate installation, design and maintenance requirements of building services in domestic, commercial and industrial buildings; of construction, and of civil engineering projects
2. Analyse and evaluate sustainable design options for buildings
3. Understand and compare construction materials in terms of properties, behaviour and characteristics
4. Apply technical skills and knowledge associated with energy efficient and renewable energy technologies for the energy demands of buildings.
