Our family

We've established a family of like-minded education providers providing better access to both further and higher education

For 125 years we've provided professional and technical education for the people and businesses of south London. However, education today is more complex than ever before and this mission can no longer be best achieved by one organisation alone.

So we've established a new family of like-minded specialist education providers, offering learners the opportunity to transfer between technical, vocational and academic pathways and creating clear progression routes into and through the middle tier of highly skilled technical and professional roles.

The LSBU family consists of South Bank University Academy of Engineering, South Bank University Engineering UTC, LSBU and South Bank University Enterprises Ltd.

MSc in Building Services Engineering

Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2  September 2019 United Kingdom London + 1 more

This Masters course provides a broad basis of advanced understanding in the technological areas of building services and energy engineering, with particular emphasis on those areas that are relevant to the interaction between the built and natural environments, modern industry, and the analysis of developing technologies. [+]

Beautiful architecture. Solid structure. What else do buildings need? Try living in one without any heating, cooling, electrical power, lighting, water or drainage. What would it be like to work in a tower without lifts? How would you manage without telephones, an IT system or an internet connection? All of these systems and many more are designed by building services engineers. Building Service Engineers turn buildings from empty shells into spaces fit for people to use. From the very start of the building design, Building Services Engineers are involved in helping architects and other members of the design team to get the size, shape, and configuration of the building right. They determine strategies for designing energy efficient buildings, making them sustainable in the long term. Buildings are responsible for a large chunk of carbon emissions so this work makes a critical contribution to reducing a building's impact on climate change. Of all the disciplines working in the built environment today, the building services engineer has the broadest reach and the deepest impact, affecting virtually every aspect of building design. In short, they make buildings work. This Masters course provides a broad basis of advanced understanding in the technological areas of building services and energy engineering, with particular emphasis on those areas that are relevant to the interaction between the built and natural environments, modern industry, and the analysis of developing technologies.
