Building service engineers play a critical role in the on and off-site construction process and in designing new systems and techniques that are driving the industry. Our degree gives you the confidence to not only interact with businesses involved in building services, but also with peers from other sectors to solve real-life problems using the pioneering CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement, Operate) approach. The CDIO approach is an international engineering education model, developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It allows you to learn in a practical, hands-on way to find creative, evaluated solutions to industry related engineering challenges. We are one of the only handful of universities in the UK to offer CDIO. We also ensure that there is considerable focus on your employability, and actively encourage work placements with the likes of EDF, Delphi and Southeast Water to help you on your path into the industry. Our foundation year option enables you to join the Mechanical Engineering (Building Services) course even if you don’t have the formal qualifications or experience to meet the entry requirements. It equips you with the knowledge to move into formal degree study, setting you up for future success. As a qualified mechanical (building services) engineer, you could be designing and developing building services to be integrated into modular buildings. Working on large or small scale projects, you could design the processes and operations (manual, semi-automated and automated) that enable parts on the production line to be implemented and fitted. Our hands-on course will support, prepare and give you confidence to enter an engineering career with varied and exciting prospects. You'll work on individual and group projects, gaining the knowledge and specialist technical and transferable skills you need to work as a mechanical engineer ensuring systems meet demand, are reliable, integrated and operate smoothly. Specialist facilities Our Verena Holmes building is home to the engineering workshop, mechatronics lab, makerspace and mechanical physics lab, complete with industry standard equipment. Location This course is run at our Canterbury Campus in Kent. Canterbury is just 50 miles south-east of London and less than an hour by high-speed train from St Pancras. Located on a UNESCO World Heritage Site the campus offers state-of-the-art buildings, right in the centre of a vibrant and world-famous cathedral city. You’ll benefit from a campus with excellent learning and teaching resources, music venues, a superb sports centre, a well-stocked bookshop and plenty of coffee bars and places to eat. A short walk away is Augustine House our award-winning library and home to a vast range of learning resources and student support teams.
