    Course description
    This part-time distance learning course provides engineers with the knowledge and skills for designing electrical systems in buildings while gaining an appreciation of the sustainability issues involved. One of the objectives of the course is to help meet a severe shortage of suitably qualified electrical building services engineers.

    Electrical services engineers play an important role in the realisation of well-designed buildings with low environmental impact. A wide and exciting range of disciplines is involved, from power networks and on-site generation, to lighting design and communications infrastructure. More general skills such as project management and interdisciplinary working are also needed. Furthermore, an understanding of sustainability is essential for the 21st century engineer. This programme provides engineers with the knowledge and skills for designing electricity systems in buildings while gaining an appreciation of the sustainability issues involved.

    For those wishing to become Chartered Engineers, the programme is approved under Engineering Council rules, by the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Energy Institute.
