It is Faculty policy to achieve professional recognition of all our programmes. This ranges from the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport and the British Computer Society.
British Computer Society (BCS)
Many of our degrees and HNDs are British Computer Society (BCS) Accredited - this "accredited" status means that you are studying for a degree that contributes to the academic requirements needed to register for "Chartered" status.
According to BCS, employers, recruiters and clients are actively searching for Chartered status as proof that you are one of the best in the business.
Our students therefore receive qualifications that are recognised by many universities and organisations as a sign of commitment to the IT industry.
Holding CITP status reflects your integrity, professionalism and dedication to your work. Your status will be recognised in a formal listing of Chartered IT Professionals on a register available to potential clients and employers on the BCS website.
Our BEng Automotive, Motorcycle and Motorsport Engineering programmes fully meet the standards required for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng), all accredited degrees are displayed on the IMechE website: www.imeche.org
BREEAM UK New Construction Scheme
BRE Global Limited: 'Protect People, Property and the Planet'
BRE Global Limited (part of the BRE(Building Researc Establishment)Group) is an independent third party approvals body offering certification of fire, security and sustainability products and services to an international market.
The BREEAM UK New Construction 2014 scheme describes the an environmental performance standard against which, new non-domestic buildings in this territory can be assessed and achieve BREEAM New Construction rating.
The nine environmental sections included in BREEAM UK New Construction Scheme include:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Land Use and Ecology
Melin Consultancy are carrying out the BREEAM assessment on the New SA1 Campus for the Faculty from now until completion. Students within the School of Architecture, Built and Natural Environments will get the opportunity to see each stage of the assessment process. BREEAM helps to enhance building sustainability - to reduce energy demands but also to look into he social, economic design within buildings. Students studying Built Environment programmes at UWTSD will see first-hand, real-world assessment and as part of the BREEAM module, and will work with contractors, engineers etc. It takes them away from the academic theory so that students can ask real questions and deal with real issues.
The BREEAM assessment is one of the key sustainable assessments for the construction industry that is world-wide recognised. The BREEAM UK New Building Construction Assessment is taught inside the Building Surveying programme. This gives our Building Surveying students the opportunity to improve their understanding of sustainable construction assessment and to improve the options of employability, not only as a BREEAM assessor but also achieving the skills to deal with sustainability assessment and the value increase in buildings.
