Bring buildings to life with a career in building services engineering

What is building services engineering?

Building Services Engineering is all about making the buildings we live, work and play in safe, working and healthy environments. Particular aspects of the buildings they focus on are:


  • Ventilation
  • Refrigeration and air-conditioning 
  • Fire detection and protection 


  • Energy supplies and use including gas, electric and water
  • Communications networks including telephone, internet 


  • Heating and ventilation 
  • Water, drainage and plumbing  
  • Air-conditioning and refrigeration 

A building without any of these components would be a cold, dark, unsafe inhabitable shell.
