Building Services Engineering Specialization

Mechanical Engineering BSc Program
Building Services Engineering Specialization 

The objective of the program is to train engineers specialised in the design, development, construction, operation and maintenance of HVAC systems (heating, ventilation, air conditioning). Building services engineers can carry out diagnostic tests, identify and develop energy-saving possibilities and methods for HVAC systems. They have in-depth theoretical knowledge to continue their studies in the second cycle.
Our graduates develop competence and acquire knowledge in the following areas:

  • supervising the construction of building service systems
  • diagnostics, maintenance and operation of building service systems
  • planning of heating, ventilation, refrigeration, gas and water supply systems in buildings
  • energy assessment, diagnostic and survey of building service systems
