MSc Building Services Engineering

Rushmore Business School

The digital age has revolutionised how engineers operate. Gone are the days when you could work with just a calculator, a piece of paper and a design chart. You will develop your expertise using building information modelling software systems that include Revit and Navisworks. Whether you graduated from our BEng(Hons) or already work in industry as an associate engineer, we will equip you with the skills to play a leading role in the design, installation and management of building services.
