Building Management Systems, also known as Building Automation Systems or BAS, are computer-based systems that control and monitor the electrical equipment of a building, including ventilation, lighting, energy, fire and security systems. There are two components to it: software and hardware. It is crucial to have a BMS in order to manage energy demand in a cost-effective manner, and it is essential for all new construction projects. It allows building owners and landlords to reduce energy costs and ensure optimum comfort for tenants, customers, and residents. Using this technology, maintenance staff will not need to visit individual buildings or rooms to turn off, switch on, or adjust heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC). You may be able to find employment in this sector as a BMS Commissioning Engineer. BMS commissioning engineers are responsible for installing new building management systems. Prior to the installation, they will work with a team to ensure that all equipment is prepared, conduct risk assessments, and provide technical assistance to other engineers to ensure the installation goes smoothly. Additionally, you may be able to work as a BMS Service Engineer, who is responsible for the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of a building's management system. They may be hired to provide service for a specific location, or they may be employed by a company that manufactures BMS equipment and travel nationwide to provide these services. Currently, there are no university courses in BMS engineering, so it is recommended that you study a relevant field such as Control Systems Engineer, Electrical or Electronics Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Computer Engineer, or Applied Physics. While an integrated master's degree is not necessary for a successful career in BMS engineering, it may help your job prospects and increase your starting salary.
There are four counties in the East of England: Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, and Essex. With London Stansted Airport, the International Gateway to the East of England, it is well connected with Europe and the rest of the world. In addition, Norwich International Airport offers multiple flights daily from Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam and London Southend Airport. This region has much to recommend it to expatriates considering a move to the UK and who are considering the East of England as a reasonable option. This area is interesting to live in and to travel around because of its history and culture, its accessibility to London, and its contrast between the flat Fenland countryside and the attractive rolling countryside of Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. Aside from that, property prices in the region are considerably lower than those in London and the South-East. As a final note, parents will have a range of excellent schooling options available to them when considering the wealth of private schools in the region – more than 200 of which are well-known names like Bedford, Berkhamstead, Kings School Ely, Radlett, Summerhill, and Tring. It is just this alone that can make the East of England very attractive, especially to those working and trying to sell houses in the region.
