As concerns over climate change and energy independence grow, the drive towards reducing energy consumption through energy-efficient building is intensifying.
  • Brunel’s Building Services Engineering with Sustainable Energy MSc gives graduates interested in environmentally responsible buildings the knowledge and skills to apply renewable and sustainable energy technologies to the design, construction and operations of interior environments.
  • As with our Building Services Engineering MSc, you'll get a solid grounding in the core subjects of heat transfer, energy conversion, acoustics, electrical services and lighting design, as well as in the practicalities of building management, fire and smoke control, waste disposal and lifts and escalators.
  • On top of this, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of key sustainability issues such as renewable energy technologies, including its generation, storage and economic and environmental impacts, energy-efficient ventilation, and air conditioning.
  • We offer two study options. You can choose 1 year full-time or 3 years via our distance learning programme.
  • This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Energy Institute (EI), which means your degree will put you on course to gain Chartered Engineer (CEng) status in the UK. 
  • Throughout your studies you’ll have use of our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and 24-hour access to industry standard specialist software for engineering design at dedicated computer clusters on campus, so you’ll have the opportunity and equipment to explore ideas and tackle problems.
  • In an era where sustainable, low-to-zero emission buildings are a goal of the construction industry, demand for job candidates with the skills to design and manage energy-efficient building projects is on the rise. Your Brunel engineering master's will give you these and stand you in good stead for a range of rewarding jobs.
