Facility And Sustainable Building Management

Consider how many buildings there are around the world. Someone needs to effectively manage all of those buildings. Job surveys and research show that that 30-50% of practicing facility managers will retire within the next decade.

The De Anza Energy and Facility Management / Building Science Program helps prepare next generation workers for well paid, sustainable and fast growing careers in sustainable building management, building energy efficiency, and the facility management industries.

Look for a new course offering, ES 69A- Introduction to Facilities Management, as part of our brand new Facility and Sustainable Building Management (FSBM) curriculum and two-year degree, starting in fall 2017.
