Construction Management Bachelor of Science - Facilities Management Concentration
Leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Management with a Concentration in Facilities Management
The concentration in Facilities Management is a specialized track within the Construction Management program. It aims to develop in its students recognized management skills along with the knowledge concerning current technologies that is necessary for entry-level professional practice. Facilities Management practice can be regarded as the management of a company’s or institution’s physical assets. The management of these assets involves short-term and long-term planning for physical facilities and real properties that integrates the organization’s strategic business plan and the technical components for that plant. The quality of work life and cost effectiveness of the organization’s environment are the goals of the facilities manager.
Building on a practical core of oral and written communications, mathematics, science, and business principles, the Facilities Management concentration introduces students to a wide range of facilities and management issues including construction, energy management techniques, building management, facility assessment, and real estate principles. An integral aspect of the concentration is the experience students gain through two semesters of cooperative employment in facilities management offices.
