Professional recognition

This programme is part of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Partnership Portfolio.

This programme has been developed in response to the growing demand for facilities management professionals with a mix of abilities from within the property and construction industries. Facilities management covers multiple disciplines and activities, enabling practitioners to be responsive to the needs of a particular building, its functional and organisational objectives.

The programme is flexible enough to enable students to tailor their studies to their particular needs and interests, thereby recognising the broad and diverse nature of the facilities management role, both within the UK and internationally.

Students develop a holistic view of the needs of the corporate environment and enhance their expertise in key areas of competence. They are also able to advance their personal transferable skills in areas such as information technology and telecommunications.

The aim of the programme is to develop students' abilities to co-ordinate the physical workplace with the people and work of the organisation, in order to facilitate the effective and efficient use of business-related property.

Outcomes

The aims of the programme are:

  • To develop the students' awareness, analytical, understanding and critical appreciation
  • To develop the skills to enable students to work and study independently and to participate in group activities
  • To encourage professional, research and decision making skills.

Facilities

The university has invested £76 million in a new building to house the campus library, TV studios and academic facilities for disciplines including architecture, design and construction. Stockwell Street, where the programme will be delivered, is a short walk from the university's buildings on the Old Royal College site.
