Course Description

The field of Electrical Services Engineering and Sustainable Design incorporates engineering disciplines employed both in modern buildings and the retrofit and upgrade of facilities.

The disciplines covered by this course include environmental control and communication, power distribution, standby generation, lighting, emergency services (lighting and fire), access control, data services, automation, building management systems and many more.

There is plenty of scope for exercising innovation, creativity and flair when using new technologies to solve everyday problems.

In the course, you’ll learn about green building technology, efficient use of energy and sustainability, refrigeration, heating, ventilation & air-conditioning, renewable plant technologies, and project management.

Subjects include energy and the environment, electrical services design, computer applications, renewable energy plant, life protection systems, building information modelling, sustainable building engineering, industrial/building automation, and electrical services design.

In a world where electrical and electronic engineering empowers the way we live, and is inextricably linked to almost everything we do, where does Electrical Services Engineering fit? This video offers some context…

Further Study

If you reach the appropriate level in final examinations and meet certain subject prerequisites, can progress to honours degree courses at Year 3 in TU Dublin.
Students normally progress to the one-year advanced entry course BSc Honours Degree in Electrical Services and Energy Management.

Electrical Services Engineers enjoy a varied, interesting work environment. Graduates can develop an interest and specialise in many areas, including working in an electrical design office for a consulting engineer as engineering systems support in the manufacturing sector, technical sales support, project management, energy and environmental control or in the provision of industrial services. The work involves both office-based and site/location activity.
