**Course Overview**

- Delve into the real-life experience of a facilities manager with a course that that keeps up with a fast-paced changing industry, focussing on sustainability.

- This degree is structured to keep pace with a changing and progressive industry. It focuses on the new demands placed on a facilities manager including the topic of sustainability.

- You will learn how the nature of a built space and the efficient control of non-core facilities affect the productivity of an organisation and the wellbeing of the people who use it.

**Why study with us**
