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. The year placement allows you to gain real world experience in engineering, management and commercial practice within industry and is extremely valuable for increasing your employability.
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. Your final year comprises of a range of optional modules, project work and an individual dissertation. A strong emphasis is placed on computational fluid dynamics, energy and waste, and heat transfer and refrigeration. Your research project will enable you to consider in more detail the holistic design of a building, its internal environment and the systems necessary to achieve a sustainable building. You will also undertake a year in industry in year three to develop additional knowledge in aspects of management and commercial practice within industry.
