So, what is a course in building services anyway? Not to be confused with building management or maintenance, courses in building services cover topics such as surveying, structural engineering, and materials management. Students learn how to work with architects to help design buildings, source construction materials, and manage all aspects of construction and build out from the ground up. Some fine arts classes such as woodworking and sculpture often fall under the category of this course topic.
