B. Tech Facilities & Services Planning
-Improving the way we live
If you’re interested in creating safe, healthy and sustainable buildings, Facilities &Services Planning could be for you.
Facilities &Services Planning is a professional engineering discipline that aims to create a safe and comfortable indoor environment while reducing a building’s environmental effect.
Engineers in Facilities & Services Planning are in charge of the design, installation, operation, and monitoring of technical services in buildings (including Civil Engineering, mechanical, electrical, also known as MEP or HVAC), as well as fire safety and security, in order to ensure a safe, comfortable, and environmentally friendly operation.
Other building specialists such as architects, structural engineers, and quantity surveyors collaborate closely with Facilities & Services Planning engineers.
Facilities & Services Planning engineers can influence building architectural design, particularly facades, in terms of energy efficiency and indoor environment, and can integrate local energy generation (e.g. façade-integrated photovoltaic) into the design or energy facilities at a community level (e.g. district heating).
Engineers that specialise in Facilities &Services Planning play a crucial role in the design and operation of energy-efficient structures (including green buildings, passive houses, and Plus-houses, and Zero-energy buildings).
Facilities &Services engineers play a key part in the transition to a low-carbon society, which helps to prevent global warming. Buildings account for nearly a third of all carbon emissions and over half of worldwide electricity demand.Materials, energy, weather, and the environment all have an impact on building and restoration projects, according to Facilities & Services Planning. The main focus is on maintaining healthy, pleasant, and energy-efficient structures.
People who work in Facilities & Services Planning look at the building as a system of parts, and consider how these parts work together in different conditions. These parts include things like:
- the structure itself
- construction materials
- Electrical, water, ventilation, heating and cooling systems.
Alternative titles: Architectural Engineering, Technical Building Services, Building Engineering, Building Science Engineering or Building Technology Services.
The term building services engineering is widely used in Commonwealth countries (incl. United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada and Australia), but in the United States of America, the field is also known as building systems engineering, civil engineering or architectural engineering.
Course Structure The curriculum is structured for four years and is divided into eight semesters. The curriculum includes field visits and internship in professional organisation
Facilities &Services engineers, Architects, clients, contractors, and other key stakeholders participating in the project use computational tools to simulate software throughout design to facilitate communication. It makes the entire system easier to comprehend and the decision-making process more efficient.
- Building performance based on information provided by the designer of the building envelope
- Solar heat
- Radiation distribution
- Air flow, and other physical phenomena within the building
- Models can be used to estimate energy usage throughout the building’s lifetime
- Lighting system
- Mechanical system
- Models can be used to predict energy consumption over the building’s lifetime
How is M.Tech (Facilities & Services Planning) Course Beneficial?
- The Master Degree course prepares them for admission in further research degrees like Ph.D.
- The program’s graduates are well-prepared to pursue careers in professional practices, consulting firms, industry, research, development organizations, and academic institutions.
- After passing the course, you’ll be able to learn new things, as the job involves creativity and alternative thinking to come up with fresh solutions to work-related challenges.

Make career connections
Making connections with individuals and groups during your degree can help your learn more about career and networking opportunities.
As well as strong industry connections, the Department of Facilities & Services Planning has partnerships with the ISHRAE (Indian Society for Heating and Refrigerating and Air -Conditioning Engineers)and ASHRAE (American Society for Heating and Refrigerating and Air -Conditioning Engineers),IPA(Indian Plumbing Association). who work either in the construction industry or for business organisations who provide services to the construction industry. All of these associations have student membership and regular networking events and provide the opportunity to network and explore career possibilities and specialist areas. The Alumni as Mentors programme for final year students also helps enhance your connections and employability while studying.
