Facilities Management (BT)

The Bachelor of Technology (BT) degree in Facilities Management prepares students to manage the buildings and the systems of large complexes such as hospitals, commercial buildings, residential or retail centers, and educational facilities. Each student’s educational experience includes participation in an extensive work internship at a remote location. This internship will deepen understanding of a facility manager’s role by experiencing the job firsthand. 

The Facilities Management program also incorporates sustainable practices, organizational behavior, supervisory abilities, project management, analyzing, and problem solving.  Graduates will be fluent in their capacity to plan, design, oversee, and communicate with others in this industry.  This evolving profession is demanding in the varied knowledge it entails, and requires today’s managers to embrace the complete life-cycle of facilities. By integrating classroom studies with hands-on laboratory activities and an internship, students will complete this program well prepared for the diverse opportunities available in this field.
