HNC Building Services Engineering

The new HN qualification in Building Services Engineering is designed to prepare candidates for a range of technical, professional and management careers in Building Services Engineering.

It provides specialised studies, which build upon previous study and experience, and are directly relevant to the individual vocations and professions in which candidates are currently working, or in which they intend to seek employment.

The Building Services Engineering sector includes the design and installation of heating, ventilating, air conditioning, refrigeration, plumbing and electrical services, for domestic, commercial and industrial buildings.

Peripheral industries, often involved in Building Services Engineering contracts, include communication, data and security systems.

This qualification was developed in partnership with Chartered Institute of Builders.

The HNC in Building Services Engineering will be recognised as satisfying the educational base for registration as an Engineering Technician (Eng Tech), and part satisfaction of requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng), within the Engineering Council (UK) specification of competences, UKSpec.

Professional bodies not registered with EC (UK), or having parallel non-registered membership categories, will recognise this award at S/NVQ Level 4 for the appropriate grade of membership.
