The Building Services program will provide you with a broad knowledge of all areas of this design science discipline. This includes all of the environmental systems that make a building usable such as ventilation, air conditioning, heating and lighting. It incorporates the supply and distribution of water, electricity and communications. It also involves the provision of fire detection and fire fighting equipment as well as lifts and escalators.
It would be suited to civil or mechanical engineers who seek to move into but are unfamiliar with the building industry, and for people working in the building services trades wishing to up-skill and obtain a higher qualification. Successful completion of the Master coursework degree will qualify you for corporate membership of the Australian Institute of Building (AIB) as a Chartered Building Professional, subject to the required practical experience.
