Apply - Admissions 2016



The Department of Mechanical Engineering in collaboration with the Department of Industrial Electrical Power Conversion and Department of Environmental Design are offering students the opportunity to further their academic and professional development by reading for a M.Sc. in Building Services Engineering.  The course is delivered on a part-time basis in the evening, spread over six consecutive semesters (October to January and February to June) and is offered on a biennial basis.



Driven by the ever increasing trends of energy consumption in buildings and growing concerns on climate change, there is now an established movement towards sustainability in buildings. Indeed, this drive has culminated in the requirement to have nearly Zero Energy Buildings as of the end of 2018. Such a drive is however regularly contrasted by the fact that building occupants have grown accustomed to a certain degree of thermal, visual and acoustic comfort, which often is energy intensive. The M.Sc. in Building Services Engineering’ aims at bridging that gap, by providing focused learning on subjects related to energy efficiency in buildings, resource management and building comfort. 


Course Structure

The taught component is spread over four (4) semesters.  During the first semester, the candidates are grounded with engineering principles relevant to building services.  Thereon candidates will build on and acquire an understanding of the underpinning science and technologies circumventing various building services systems and their role with respect to sustainable building design. Integration of various technologies within buildings is also tackled along with necessary management, professional and legal skills.

The final year augments the taught component of the course by offering candidates the opportunity to apply their acquired knowledge to a project in building services engineering.

The language of instruction is English.


How to Apply

Interested persons wishing to apply for this course starting in October 2017 are invited to apply online.
