Online Bachelor of Science (BS) in Facilities Management
Earn an online bachelor's degree in Facilities Management and take the lead in managing facilities, cybersecurity, and unmanned systems use.
With a degree in Facilities Management, you will bring a unique skill set to the built environment. You will explore the requirements of what it takes to manage a variety of facilities by using multiple disciplines to ensure functionality, comfort, safety and efficiency of the built environment by integrating people, place, process and technology. Using knowledge in management, cybersecurity, and technology, you will understand how to protect both physical buildings, industrial plants, transportation, infrastructure, and the computer networks that remotely operate these facilities, and how they are crucial to our society and the way we live. You will also complete an unmanned systems course and can add a minor in unmanned systems that will lead to being able to obtain your FAA Part 107 license to operate commercial uses of drones weighing less than 55 pounds.
Facilities Management is a trillion dollar industry and is huge both in the United States and internationally and leads to many career opportunities. There are many types of facilities such as small office complexes, high rises, stadiums, airports, to name just a few which directly overlap with the Department of Homeland Security’s 16 critical infrastructure sectors. These include the management and protection of facilities such as water and wastewater treatment facilities, power plants, oil refineries, manufacturing facilities, chemical facilities, transportation sector, nuclear industry, dams, commercial facilities, communications structures, defense bases, and hospitals. The International Facility Management Association provides a great summary of the industry on their webpage.
