What is... Electrical Services Engineering?

The field of Electrical Services Engineering and Sustainable Design incoprporates engineering disciplines employed both in modern buildings as well as the broader concerns associated with the green economy. These environments require graduates with a high degree of knowledge capability and diversity in an ever expanding engineering context with an ability to apply such skills in the retrofit and upgrade of facilities.

What are my... Career Opportunities?

Electrical Services Engineers enjoy a very varied, interesting work environment.

There are many areas in which graduates can develop an interest and subsequently specialise. These include 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 invariably involves both office based and site/location activity.

What other options do I have after completion?

Students who graduate from DT010 may progress to the BSc Honours Degree in Electrical Services & Energy Management - DT035 (Full Time) or DT018 (Part Time).

And from there to the MSc in Energy Management - DT711 (Full Time) or DT015 (Part Time).

Graduates may also gain Advanced Level Entry to other higher degree programmes in DIT and elsewhere in Higher Education.

Learning Outcomes: What will I Study?

The disciplines covered by the programme 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. As well as expertise in these areas, graduates from this programme will have expertise in the application of low carbon technologies including green generation technologies.

Students will have a keen interest in how things work and in problem solving. There is plenty of scope for exercising innovation, creativity and flair when using new technologies to solve everyday problems.

Green building technology, efficient use of energy and sustainability are all areas that are addressed. The programme also includes modules covering project management, refrigeration, heating, ventilation & air-conditioning as well as renewable plant technologies.
