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 HVAC building services programme you will gain good basic skills to manage, build, plan and implement HVAC systems. The studies are practical and versatile and you will learn about several different HVAC systems and related devices.

As a professional in HVAC building services you will create healthful and energy efficient buildings, which take into account the safe and suitable use of water and plumbing, healthful indoor air, lighting and many alternative ways of heating.
Building services engineering is needed in both new construction and renovation projects. One of the greatest areas are the tasks in building maintenance and use. After graduation you may find work as
•building services designer
•expert or supervisor tasks in contract work
•system commissioning and maintenance tasks
•device construction and sales
•supervision and authority tasks
•real estate manager tasks.

As you gain more experience, you can progress in your career into supervision, management 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 professionals in HVAC and electrical building services cooperate in the building industry with the other professionals in construction.
The scope of the degree programme is 240 credits. The courses form 1-2 period long modules.

The structure and implementation of the studies emphasise the ”finding out” principle which is central in the field of building services engineering. Each year you will carry out design, survey and measurement tasks together with the students of electrical building services engineering and construction engineering.

For more detailed information see TAMK curriculum

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.
