The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Facilities Management at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture prepares students for leadership in a career that integrates people, place, process and technology to ensure functionality of the built environment.
The curriculum spans Tyler and the rest of Temple University, including the Fox School of Business, with the core of the program’s coursework taking place in Tyler’s Facilities Management Lab (FM Lab), where students simulate real-world interdisciplinary collaboration, and lessons learned in the classroom are demonstrated through facilities planning projects. The FM Lab is also a place for professional engagement. Facilities management professionals from the Philadelphia region are frequent visitors to the program, providing students with real-world insights as well as professional connections.
Students graduate well-prepared for careers in the facilities management profession. The degree, which is accredited by the International Facilities Management Association (IFMA), accelerates the students’ eligibility to obtain professional credentials administered by IFMA. Students in the program who choose to continue into graduate study can choose the three-year track of Tyler’s Master of Architecture Program or the one-year MS in Facilities Planning degree.
Facilities Management is one of several degree pathways at Tyler for undergraduates studying built-environment design, along with Architecture, Historic Preservation, Landscape Architecture and Community Development.
