Careers in FME
Facilities Management professionals coordinate the physical workplace with the people and work of the organization. They integrate principles of business administration, architecture, and behavioral and engineering sciences. They manage the operation and maintenance of buildings, the renovation, allocation, and utilization of space and equipment, and are employed throughout the country in private industry, government, and the non-profit sector. Facilities Managers generally manage a staff of skilled, semiskilled and unskilled trade personnel in activities concerned with the operation, repair, maintenance and construction of facilities, equipment, buildings and grounds.
Graduates of this program will be able to apply for positions involving the management and maintenance of small to large facilities.
