Facility Management (MS)
"The physical assets of an organization are typically one of its largest financial holdings and the strategic planning, development, and maintenance of these assets are critical to an organizations' financial health and stability."
Facility managers need to be knowledgeable about business management, strategic planning, interior and architectural design, construction management, information technology, real estate, engineering, labor relations, and quality of life aspects in the work environment. It's a broad based field that requires individuals to have breadth and depth in their education and eventually - work experience.
The facility management program will prepare graduates to work in a management capacity where he or she will oversee the operations, planning, and maintenance of facilities. It is anticipated that these graduates must be able to intelligently communicate facility issues with corporate officers as well as with customers, contractors, vendors, and employees.
New established in 2006, RIT's master of science degree in facility management is offered by the department of civil engineering technology, environmental management and safety. Developed by a panel of experienced FM professionals, the MS program is designed to provide graduates with a solid grounding in both technical and managerial aspects of facility management. The curriculum was also developed using educational standards established by the International Facility Management Association (IFMA).
