Building services engineering is very important to modern societies and urban cities. This course will introduce and explain the heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems which are the most important engineering systems in many types of buildings. It will also develop students in the basic concepts of fire safety, the legislative requirements and the design of most commonly installed fire service systems.
The teaching/learning will be supported by audio/visual aids, Web-based resources, technical visits and class discussions. The students have the opportunity to perform laboratory experiments or to undertake mini-projects to better understand the application of knowledge acquired. Satisfactory attendance rate and active class participation are expected and required.
The course emphasizes the application of basic engineering principles to the design and analysis of HVAC and fire services systems. The students have the opportunity to learn the basic concepts, study the practical system design factors, perform laboratory experiments, and undertake mini-projects to better understand the application of knowledge acquired and new advanced technologies. The issue related to energy efficiency and sustainability is also given recognition in the course.
