Building Technology & Services (Bachelor of Technology)
The school of planning and architecture offers B.TECH (BTS) (Full time) degree program in facilities & services for design and planning of buildings. It is an interdisciplinary course, which relates to design, planning, and maintenance of residential, commercial or institutional buildings, such as Green buildings, hospitals, clinics, hotels, resorts, schools, office complexes, convention centers. Duties may include the care of air conditioning, electric power, plumbing and lighting system

The curriculum is structured for 4 years and is divided into 8 semesters. The (1 to 7) semesters consist of full time study followed by practical training in professional offices and field visits. The 8th semester consists of a full project in areas like planning, design, HVAC, fire detection and firefighting system etc.
B. Tech Facilities & Service Planning (FSP)
Space planning & design are concerned with the development of thebuilt environment in terms of:
  • circulation
  • spatial planning,
  • indoor environmental control,
  • furniture design and
  • other visual aspects in relation to human psychology in Interior spaces.
Job Opportunities
This degree gives the student a variety of professional options. Both public and private sectors offer a range of jobs. Graduates can work as technical engineers in the fields of:

  • Planning sectors (urban and rural planning and GIS Engineers Design industries)
  • Consultants for large architecture projects, Project Design, Graphics Design, Industrial Design etc.,
  • Construction fields (Project management building designers, environmental designers, Construction engineers for MEP Services, etc.,
  •   Soft ware industry, software development for MEP (Mechanical/Electrical/ Plumbing) Services,

FACILITIES & SERVICE PLANNING (FSP) is an interdisciplinary engineering discipline that offers a
  • Civil engineering for building structures and foundation
  • Mechanical engineering for Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning system (HVAC), and Transportation systems in Buildings
  • Environmental Engineering for Green Building Concepts and understanding Environmental Impacts of Built Environment
  • Automation Engineering for Building Automation
  • Physics for building science, Lighting and Acoustics
  • Electrical engineering for power distribution, control, and electrical systems
  • Chemistry and Biology for Indoor Air quality(IAQ)
  • Architecture for form, function, building codes and specifications
  • Economics for project management
Building Services engineers work closely with other construction professionals, architect structural engineers and quantity surveyors. They influence the architecture of a building and play a significant role in the sustainability and energy demands of a building. Within building services engineering, new roles are emerging, in the areas of renewable energy, sustainability, low carbon technologies and energy management. With building accounting for around 50% of all carbon emissions, building services engineers play a significant role in combating climate change. As such, a typical building services engineer has a wide-ranging career path:

  • DESIGN: Designing layouts and requirements for building services for residential or     commercial developments
  • CONSTRUCTION: Supervising construction of building services, commissioning systems and ongoing maintenance and operation of services.
  • ENVIRONMENTAL: Developing new energy saving methods of construction, designing new and improved energy conservation systems for building.
  • HEATING, VENTILATION AND AIR CONDITIONING (HVAC): Specializing in the design, development, construction and operation of HVAC system.
  • ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY: Specializing in the design and development of electrical systems required for safe and energy sustaining operation of buildings
intermediate (M.P.C) / 10+2 with mathematics, physics, chemistry / equivalent qualification.

Selection procedure: The students have to qualify in EAMCET conducted by the Directorate of Technical  
State level Andhra Pradesh.
