We are looking for students who are keen to learn new skills and develop those they already possess. We want students with the ability to: be creative with ideas and concepts, moderate their creativity with logic, be enthusiastic and thirsty for knowledge, communicate effectively and confidently and understand and adapt to a wide range of issues connected with the subject. It is also important that students are able to manage time and tasks effectively as an individual and as part of a team, use appropriate sources to find and organise information and select and critically evaluate information in order to analyse problems. If you would like to develop these skills further, have a strong interest in this subject area and want to work effectively within it, then this is the course for you! International applications will be considered in line with UK qualifications.

Subject

Architectural engineering

The BEng (Hons) Architectural Engineering at Liverpool John Moores University is informed by internationally-acclaimed research plus extensive links with employers, who also offer exciting paid placement opportunities. - Course developed in partnership with practising architectural engineers- Degree covers both the domestic sector and commercial buildings, new and refurbished- Opportunity to undertake a years industrial work placement- Dedicated Industry Unit to identify both placement opportunities and potential employers, both in the UK and overseas - Annual employers day event helps students find placements and make useful industry contacts

Modules

Please see guidance on core and option modules for further information on what you will study.

This programme, which has been developed in partnership with practising professionals, helps you gain the skills required to design and integrate complex building engineering systems within an aesthetically pleasing building envelope, such that internal environmental conditions can be closely controlled and energy use is minimised. Building services engineering areas considered throughout the programme include energy efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, alongside electrical installations and lighting design.

In your first year you will be introduced to the basic underpinning engineering, scientific and mathematical principles, plus architectural and design philosophies. The technology focus at this point applies mainly to the domestic sector.

In the second year the knowledge attained in the first year is extended to encompass commercial buildings, both new and refurbished, and is applied to the design of systems for complex buildings.

The third year is an optional placement year and students will be able to complete a period of work experience with a suitable employer.

The final year of the BEng course extends students' learning on to the modelling and design of buildings, and the simulation of building services systems within complex buildings. In addition you will be exposed to real, vocationally relevant project work with a focus on the promotion of sustainability. Students are also given the opportunity to carry out research in an area that they find particularly interesting.

Projects are integrated at all levels of the degree, with materials and supervision provided by employers so you can replicate real-life scenarios in your work.

Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal Academic Framework review, so may be subject to change. Students will be required to undertake modules that the University designates as core and will have a choice of designated option modules. Additionally, option modules may be offered subject to meeting minimum student numbers.

Please see the programme specification document for further details on this course.

Assessment methods

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose.

All students perform differently depending on how they are assessed which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. These include exams (open and closed book), coursework (projects, laboratory and technical reports) and oral presentations. Your tutors will give prompt and constructive feedback via Canvas (our virtual learning environment), face-to-face or in writing. This will help you to identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Do you want to be in demand? This might be the degree for you! We are officially short of civil engineers, and so around two thirds of civil engineering graduates start jobs specifically as civil engineers, and starting salaries are well over £25k last year. Demand for civil engineers and related jobs - we're short of all of them - means that good graduates have plenty of options directly related to their degree when they graduate. This is a subject where work experience can be very helpful in getting a job and many students do work for engineering companies while they take their degrees.

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

Have a question about this info? Learn more here

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
