CIBSE accreditation reflects new research strengths
The School of the Built Environment is pleased to announce that the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has accredited the following two programmes:
MSc in Design and Management of Sustainable Built Environments to be accredited as meeting the further learning requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Technologies for Sustainable Built Environments also to be accredited as meeting the further learning requirements for CEng status.
The School of the Built Environment has in recent years significantly expanded its research activities in areas relating to building services engineering and energy systems. Particular areas of expertise include: environmental engineering, health & well-being, renewable energy and urban sustainability. The School has a strong orientation towards interdisciplinary ‘real world’ problems and a proud record of engagement with industry and the professions.
Professor Stuart Green, Head of the School of the Built Environment, said: “We have enjoyed a close relationship with CIBSE for many years, and we are delighted to receive accreditation of these two strategically important programmes. This recognition by CIBSE says much about our expertise in building services engineering, but it also reinforces our commitment to interdisciplinary research & education. The bottom line is that the realisation of a sustainable built environment requires qualified engineers with skill-sets that are much broader than those traditionally recognised”.
