If you’re keen on construction and urban planning, courses in building services might be right for you. Combining engineering and design with carpentry and construction, these courses give interested students a competitive building and design edge in their studies.

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.

There are myriad benefits of taking courses in building services, most notably of which is the acquisition of a practical skill set that can be put to use in a variety of disciplines. Students who take more advanced courses in building services benefit from a high employability rate.

Costs associated with courses in building services vary and are comparable to courses in engineering. Added factors to consider for these courses are the costs of building or construction materials and apprenticeships.

Students who take courses in building services find themselves better prepared for today’s job market, regardless of their final degree. Jobs are plentiful in the industry, both in the United States and overseas, and students who go on to earn a degree in this discipline enjoy exciting careers that combine technical planning and design work together with hands-on installation and problem solving. Moreover, students with green building design and construction courses under their belt—a highly sought-after expertise—are very desirable to potential employers.
