Aims & Characteristics

Programme Aims

The MEng in Building Services Engineering is an enhanced and extended first degree programme that covers a body of engineering and related knowledge which is both deeper and broader than a conventional BEng(Hons) in Building Services Engineering. The broadened and deepened knowledge and skill enable graduates to handle and manage engineering projects that are large in scale (both in the size of project and the investment involved) and complex and varied in nature, which require more meaningful collaboration amongst professionals from various disciplines, and may have significant social, economical and environmental impacts.



The programme provides a means for a limited number of the most able graduates from the BEng(Hons) in Building Services Engineering programme or other equivalently qualified students to develop towards leadership roles in the building services engineering profession by completing a Dissertation, studying additional enhanced and extended technical, management and environmental subjects, and receiving extra training in language skills.

Recognition & Prospects

Accreditation by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) as suitable further learning to meet the academic requirement for CEng registration.


Programme Structure

Students who are admitted to this programme undertake, over two semesters, a 9-credit Dissertation Project, aiming at developing their subject expertise and investigation skills. The dissertation also allows students to develop interpersonal skills by requiring them to plan, coordinate and manage their project work, which involves interacting with others.


In addition, students study 4 Elective Subjects from a wide range of the subjects offered within the MSc in Building Services Engineering, 1 environmental Elective Subject, 1 management subject and 1 English subject, all at the Master's level over the two-semester period. The selection of Elective Subjects is expected to be closely related to the Dissertation project undertaken.
