Building Services Engineering

In our modern society, a steady supply of heat, cooling, air, water, electricity, and lighting is a matter of course. However, these functions require a complex structure and comprehensive management:

Building services engineers work scientifically in order to design, plan, and monitor the installations required to meet these requirements, thereby safeguarding the facilities that allow us to operate our buildings and properties in an energy-saving and sustainable manner. In this regard, analytical and visionary minds are in high demand in the following areas of work:

  • Planning and project management, building, construction, and development of components and installations for facility technology systems
  • Energy-related and technical facility management
  • Consultant and expert
