Building services engineers are responsible for ensuring that the electrical, mechanical and telecoms aspects of new buildings perform effectively and efficiently: essentially, all the functional characteristics of a building that take it from being an empty shell to a comfortable living space. As such, the job may include tasks such as:
Building services engineering projects can vary from the design of the air filtration system in a forensic lab to the installation of flood lights in a sports stadium.

There are routes into a career as a building services engineer for both university graduates and school leavers. Graduates typically need a degree in an area such as building services engineering, architectural engineering, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. It should be accredited by an appropriate professional body, such as CIBSE or IMechE.
Graduate building services engineers can work towards one of two professional qualifications depending on what level of degree they completed. If they have a BEng, they can apply for incorporated engineer status with a professional body. If they completed either a BEng followed by a masters or an MEng degree, they can become a chartered engineer. Both titles are highly valued by employers, though chartered engineers are often more sought after.
