¿Qué aprenderé?

Building services primarily include air-conditioning and ventilation, electrical distribution and lighting, active fire protection, plumbing and drainage, vertical transportation, security, telecommunication, and building automation systems. Satisfactory performance of these systems is crucial to providing a safe, healthy, comfortable and productive environment for people and processes in buildings.

Building Services Engineering (BSE) is a multi-disciplinary profession which entails the application of art and science in design, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of services systems for buildings. Given the ever-rising needs and expectations of users, building services systems have become increasingly sophisticated, leading to the mounting demand for competent building services professionals.

Worldwide there have been growing recognitions that the performance of buildings and their services systems has significant impacts on the environment. The prevalent pursuit of green and sustainable buildings further highlights the vital role that building services professionals have to play in enhancing such aspects as energy conservation, indoor environmental quality, resources recycling, waste minimization and pollution control associated with the use of buildings.

Building Energy

Energy issues in the building and built environments are addressed in the context of both demand and supply. We work on enhancing energy efficiency on the demand side by optimized design and smart control of energy systems and use of nano-coatings. One the supply side, we promote effective use of renewables as well as innovative use of waste for clean energy generation.

It covers:

  • Advanced air-conditioning and refrigeration technology
  • Building automation, optimal control and design
  • Building demand response for smart grid
  • Energy efficient operation and maintenance
  • Renewable energy applications in buildings: solar energy, wind energy and ground source heat pump technologies
  • Smart energy system
  • System simulation
