    Group Project in the Construction Industry
    Health, Safety and Welfare for Construction and the Built Environment
    Application of Scientific Principles to Building Services Engineering
    Optional Units:
    Mechanical Pathway:
    Applied Mathematics for Construction and the Built Environment, Management Principles and Application for Construction and the Built Environment, Thermofluids and Acoustic Criteria for Building Services Engineering, Air Conditioning for Industrial and Commercial Buildings, Low Pressure Hot Water Heating for Non-domestic Buildings and Heating Systems for Industrial and Specialist Applications.
    Electrical Pathway:
    Electrical and Electronic Control Principles for Building Services Engineering, Electrical Installation for Building Services Engineering, Lighting Applications for Industrial and Commercial Buildings, Electrical Protection and Transportation Installations for Non-domestic Buildings.

    The programme is delivered by lecturers who have many years’ teaching and industry experience.

    Assessment is by a range of methods including assignments, projects, case studies and practical exercises.

    The course is run over two academic years. Attendance will be one full day a week (taught sessions from 8.45am-6.00pm).

    The programme takes place at the Town Centre campus.



    Award Received
    Upon successful completion of the course you will receive a Higher National Certificate in Construction and the Built Environment (Building Services Engineering).

    Progression
    A Higher National Certificate is an access qualification to senior positions in most disciplines of the Building Services Industry. Those gaining a Higher National Certificate are eligible to join Degree programmes in Building Services Engineering (subject to individual university rules) leading to professional status.

    Course Fees
    The fees for the first year of the course in 2016 are £2,600 (4 units) and £650 (additional unit fee) i.e. £3,250 plus BTEC registration fee £173.

    Fees may increase should there be a significant change to the underlying cost of providing the course, such as in periods of high inflation, or fundamental changes to course structure due to regulatory or legal obligations. In all cases we will seek to set the maximum of any annual fee rise to the greater of the Retail Price Index or 5%. The maximum cost for the two year programme will be £6,662.50 plus BTEC registration fee £173 (Year two cost = £3,250 + 5% = £3,412.50)

    Fees are due at enrolment each year and can be paid either through a Student Loan or by your personal funds (an instalment plan is available if you are paying yourself). Once you have enrolled you are liable for the full year's fee, regardless of whether the full year is completed or not.

    There will also be costs for photocopying and printing.



    Quality Assurance (QA)
