Integrating People, Place and Technology.

In today's digital era and emphasis on sustainability, buildings are envisioned to be smarter and greener. The Diploma in Facilities Management (DFM) will equip you with the skills to manage different types of building assets, from managing operations, to maintenance and integrating new technologies.

Explore IoT, sensors, building information modelling, digital asset delivery, data analytics and visualisation and other relevant technologies supporting the operations, maintenance, and management of facilities. Learn about environmental and sustainability concepts, certification schemes and asset enhancement strategies that contribute to sustainability and operational efficiency. 

Discover how to optimise energy usage, monitor building performance, and enhance user comfort through innovative and sustainable solutions to shape a better environment for all.

Facilities management is a critical discipline that plays a pivotal role in the efficient and sustainable operation of the built environment.  Through engaging industry-linked projects and internships, you'll gain invaluable hands-on experience, put theory into practice, and develop the practical skills.

In Their Own Words

My internship was truly enlightening, thanks to the interactions with colleagues and the mentorship I received. The internship revealed how these diverse knowledge areas taught in school seamlessly intersect in the real job. There are no individual silos and this has led me to think critically on how to best apply the different knowledge bases to best perform on the job.
