3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

This subject, eminently technological, should make known, study and evaluate, within the time possibilities of the curriculum, the answers that man has provided to the establishment and control of different internal environmental conditions, influencing these conditions on:

• Survival and safety (protection against fires, electric shocks, intrusions, etc.).

• Health (quality of air, water, hygiene and sanitation, etc.).

• Performance and comfort (visibility, climate comfort, hearing, movement and transport of people and things, etc.).

Nowadays we can not understand a building without the basic services of water supply, drainage and sanitary, electricity, lighting, air conditioning, telecommunications, etc. While the structure is the skeleton and the envelope the skin, the facilities constitute the circulatory system (energy, fluids, information, etc.).

In this field there are continuous technological developments, standards and standards changes that condition the work of professionals dedicated to the project, assembly, maintenance and control of building facilities, which leads to a practical study and a systematic check of the facts as basic work tool, without doubting or disregarding the theoretical flow of information necessary to understand and analyze the processes described.

The actions that at professional level have relation with the facilities can be very varied. In the preliminary study of the project of a building whose execution will be directed, the Building Engineer must recognize and differentiate the projected facilities, relating them to the rest of the construction, visualizing the building as a body. In this phase, the necessary construction details for the execution of the installations will be prepared or planned, looking for the solutions that best suit the structural and constructive configuration of the building. During the construction of the building they must have the necessary knowledge to supervise, control and plan the assembly work, as well as the tests and inspections that have to be carried out on the assembled installations.

For these tasks, the Building Engineer needs to know and know how to apply the regulations and regulations that govern the different types of facilities. It should not be forgotten that many of these regulations have a marked technical nature, a situation that requires a minimum level of theoretical knowledge to understand and apply properly.

Considering all the above, it is essential to know the intrinsic functioning of the facilities, in order to know which objective and function meet the elements that compose it, its calculation and sizing. In this way, it will be possible to analyze the designs whose execution has to be supervised, as well as to be able to carry out own designs in the realization of projects, within the competences of the knowledge and profession of the Building Engineer.

Knowing the materials used in the realization of the facilities acquires a vision of the behavior of the same, not only during its assembly, but during its operation; the precautions that must be taken when assembling them, the incompatibility between materials and their installation conditions. In addition, it will be possible to plan and take control of the maintenance of the installations executed in buildings, a task that is becoming increasingly relevant in this field.

In addition, the Building Engineer must know how to perform the analytical calculations of the different facilities, as well as the management of abacuses and tables for the calculations and verifications that have to be carried out in the design phases or in the evaluation of solutions on site, as well as in the solution of the deficiencies that may exist at the project level.

General and specific software will be used as tools for sizing facilities, supported by the knowledge necessary to verify the results obtained. The computers are considered complementary accessories for the Building Engineer, they do not substitute him, they revalue him, making him more essential, but demanding a concise knowledge of the operation of the facilities.

In the course will try to reach a balance between the knowledge of design, materials, systems, elements, execution, maintenance and sizing, because they are all related to each other.
