The curriculum has been planned so that the student completes 60 ECTS credits per academic year and 30 ECTS credits per semester

Studies of syllabus is planned so 60 credits are studied in academic year and length of studies is 3,5/4/4,5 years. Planned syllabus may change during studies.

In the programme of electrical building services engineering you will learn to design, construct and maintain electrotechnical systems in buildings. These include electric installations, lighting, electric heating, communications and telecommunications systems, building automation and alarm systems. Our special focus area are the modern control and monitoring systems.

As a professional of electrical building services engineering you will create the intelligent buildings and functional homes, jobs and offices of the future. Building services engineering are important for the functionality, healthfulness, safety and energy efficiency in our living environment. The professionals in HVAC and electric building services engineering work together with the other professionals in construction.

The importance of electrical building services engineering increases as buildings have more built-in computers and automation. Electrical building services engineering sees to the secure transfer and use of electricity the services need and increasingly the functions of various monitoring, alarm, control and automation systems.

Building services engineering is needed in both new construction and renovation projects. One of the greatest areas of work are the tasks in building maintenance and use. After graduation you may find work
•as building services designer
•in expert or supervisor tasks in contract work
•in system commissioning and maintenance tasks
•in machine construction and sales
•in supervision and authority tasks
•in real estate manager tasks.

As you gain more experience, you can progress in your career into supervisor, manager or demanding expert tasks. You may either concentrate on a single field or educate yourself into a versatile expert. A professional in building services engineering may be employed by a small or a large company or become an entrepreneur themselves.


The annual themes of studies are
1st year theme: Need: The business of building services engineering, basic engineering skills and finding out your own learning needs.

2nd year theme: Draft: Energy efficient building services in a residential building and working as a member of a team.

3rd year theme: Implementation: Energy efficient office premises, improving the learning principles behind “finding out” and working responsibly in different groups.

4th year theme: Use and maintenance: Use and maintenance of building services and managing entities.

During the third and fourth year of study you may choose a module to direct or supplement your own study path. You may also choose to take part in foreign exchange or work in company projects.
