Building services engineers design and build functional and safe living and working environments with the help of the latest IT and environmentally friendly technologies. Once graduated from the Degree Programme in Building Services Engineering, a student has not only the knowledge and skills required in the field, but also the capability to follow the development of the field and the motivation to life-long learning.
Although the students choose one of the professional majors below as their field of focus, the emphasis of the Degree Programme is on learning both electrical and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) engineering.
The professional majors are:
- HVAC Design
- HVAC Contracting
- Property Management (adult education only)
The main professional study units in HVAC Design are related to air conditioning, energy production and distribution, construction automation, sanitary engineering, and refrigeration technology.
The study areas in HVAC Contracting are for the most part the same as in the HVAC Design. In addition to the building services studies also communication, presentation and human relations skills are emphasised.
An engineer graduated from this Degree Programme is employed as an expert in building services, environmental technology and related fields. Typical duties include design, implementation, operation and maintenance duties in the construction industry, research, product development and marketing duties in HVAC engineering, both in Finland and abroad.
All tuition in the Degree Programme in Building Services Engineering is in Finnish.
