Do you combine an interest in technology with a passion for getting things done? Technical Facility Management (TFM) could be the perfect outlet for your energies. Facility Management deals with the issues surrounding human productivity and the methods of supporting people at their workplace. Adopting a holistic approach, TFM seeks to provide an integrated response to the various challenges presented, whilst seeking the best possible approach to optimizing human productivity.
In addition to a technical talent, you will need a head for numbers and an interest in sustainability to operate, maintain and improve facilities. Graduates of this degree programme are able to manage processes in such a way as to guarantee productivity improvements, the best use of resources and reduce the environmental impact of building use.
We train engineers with an understanding of both technology and Business Administration, qualified to assume middle management positions in TFM and lead projects in Building Operation, Maintenance and Energy Management
Technical Facility managers are needed wherever processes are required to support core operations. This can include a range of areas including Auto- mobile Manufacture, Airport Management, Hospital Operation or Banking. Graduates of this programme are employed by Real Estate owners (airports, local government, Real Estate companies) Facility Management service pro- viders and companies which both build and operate facilities.
Following a foundation stage dealing with a range of Mathematics and Scien- tific issues, the technical section of the degree programme addresses a range of issues such as Building Construction, Technical Equipment and Energy Management. This is combined with modules in Facility Management and Business Administration. The programme combines all these topics into the interdisciplinary conception of the sustainable construction and operation of facilities. Electives include Occupational Safety, Industrial and Organisational Psychology, Fire Protection and Digitalization in Facility Management
