Over the last decades, anthropogenic uses of energy have caused irreparable damages to global environment and threatened sustainability of global eco system through devastating causes such as the depletion of stratospheric ozone layer and global warming. Certain damages, such as those to the ozone layer, could be mitigated if determined efforts are put in place at the present, though it would likely to takes thousands of years to recover and restore. Sensible and rational use of energy has become a necessity because of the intricate interconnectivity between the energy use and the environment and there is a great need for capacity and awareness building, especially among the practicing engineers, to ensure the sustainability of the global system.
The building industry consist of two major engineering activities; those relating to creating the built environment, and those relating to maintaining safe, comfortable, hygienically acceptable interior built environment. Though very much an essential part of human existence, building industry is one major user of energy in the form of resources and energy consumption during construction and, mainly energy consumption in maintaining internal built environment throughout its useful lifespan. Both pre and post construction phases and activities of building industry are responsible for substantial levels of environmental damages; contributing for about 50% of all carbon emissions and depletion of natural resources.
Building services engineering is very much connected with construction industry during planning and pre-construction activities; architectural aspects, structural engineering and quantity surveying etc. All these influence the architecture of a building and play a significant role on the energy demand of a building. Within building services engineering, new roles are emerging in the areas of renewable energy, sustainability, low carbon technologies and energy management.
This programme focuses on introducing the concepts and methods of reducing the environmental burden of activities related to the interior built environment. The students will have an opportunity to expose themselves to latest knowledge and practice guidelines etc of building service engineering design, refrigeration, heating, ventilation and air conditioning technologies, electrical, electronic control engineering technology in designing safe and sustainable buildings with efficient building utility systems.
Since there are overlapping interests and topics with certain themes of civil engineering, the
proposed postgraduate programme in BSE, conducted by the Mechanical Engineering dept,
shares some courses with the proposed postgraduate program in Sustainable built environment
of Civil Engineering, University of Peradeniya. The students have the option of registering
either for a postgraduate diploma or a masters’ degree.
The course consists of taught courses,industrial assignments, laboratory and design exercises and a research project.
The Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya, has excellent physical facilities and a
team of highly qualified academic staff to conduct the programme. Further, visiting experts
from industry and academia will contribute as resource personnel.
Capacity building in the area of Building Services Engineering.
Establishing an academic and research culture in the area of Building Services
Engineering in Sri Lanka.
Awareness building among the stakeholders on the need for incorporating concepts
of sustainability and efficient building utility concepts in the practice of building
planning and construction
Training engineering professionals to carry out activities related to the interior built
environments efficiently and effectively.
Applications are now called for the 3rd batch, 2018 intake. Hard copies of perfected applications should be submitted to the Assistant Registrar, Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya, Peradeniya on or before 20th December 2017. (Please. write “PG programme in building services engineering” on the upper left corner of the envelop.)
