University of Nottingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Architectural environment engineers create comfortable and efficient indoor environments using modern technologies and sustainable design. Built on traditional building services engineering foundations, this forward-looking and challenging course addresses the increasing need for highly qualified engineers who can take a holistic approach to designing architectural environments for a low-carbon future. The course is accredited by the Engineering Council through the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and offers the first step to becoming a Chartered Engineer. At Nottingham you will have access to our state-of-the-art facilities including Fluid Dynamics, Thermodynamics, and renewable energy laboratories. Additionally, practical work brings theory to life with our Urban Observatory and Creative Energy Homes projects.
In your first and second year you will learn transferable skills, engineering fundamentals and specialist topics such as engineering mathematics, thermofluids and acoustics and lighting. You will also undertake a number of design projects. Modules in your third year include; BIM for Building Services, Energy and Waste, Applications of Heat Transfer and refrigeration, Energy and Environment, Computational Fluid Dynamics for the Built Environment and Architectural Engineering Design. Modules in your fourth year include; research project, Simulation Modelling Theory, Building Physics and Architectural Engineering Design.
