What is the programme about?
The programme is aimed at graduates and professionals who require specialist knowledge concerning the management energy usage within the Built Environment sector. For new graduate entrants to the sector it will provide a competitive edge as they embark on a career in this sector. For professionals who are already working in the area and who may not have such a formal qualification it will provide a skillset to further develop their careers.
Together with receiving a certificate for completing this programme, graduates will be eligible for a ten credit exemption from the MSc in Management in the Built Environment major award [90 credits required to attain the major award including 30 credits to be awarded on completion of a Dissertation (25 credits) and Research methods module (5 credits)].
The programme will provide an upskilling opportunity for those professionals engaged within the Built Environment sector and this particular subject area is one where there is a recognised managerial skills deficit.
On completion of this programme, students should have:
• A detailed comprehension of the theory, concepts, methods and processes pertaining to low carbon technology and services and an advanced ability to scrutinise emerging building services technologies with particular emphasis on low carbon emissions;
• The ability to scrutinise and reflect on the carbon consumption of a building using both analytical and computational methods;
• A critical awareness of current problems and/ or new insights in the area of energy usage in buildings and the emerging technologies and research relating to the field of energy usage in a building;
• The ability to communicate the results of their learning to both specialist and non-specialist audiences in relation to knowledge obtained in the area of low carbon technology and services and of energy monitoring, auditing and analysis.
