Abstract

The field of building systems engineering forms a cornerstone in modern building systems. Building systems engineering involves integration of such diverse technologies as civil, architectural, mechanical, electrical, electronic, and computer engineering. Engineering education has traditionally concentrated around single discipline activities. Mechanical engineering degree courses, for example, have generally included some aspects of electrical and electronic technology, and, similarly, electrical engineering courses have usually incorporated some aspects of mechanical engineering. The reason for this is that both of these engineering schools have been patently aware of other requirements and have at least recognized the need for an appreciation of the other discipline.
