Facility Technology

This degree programme is innovative for a number of reasons. Its structure and content have been developed in close collaboration with Bavarian facility technology companies.

The master's degree programme gives students the ability to perform demanding and complex project management and leadership tasks within facility technology companies. The master's degree programme builds upon the knowledge gained during an initial university degree in the field (berufsqualifizierend) and, as an advanced degree programme, includes a high proportion of business administration and law, content on the subject of energy-efficient construction, building, and system simulations, building automation, as well as practice-oriented projects.

The projects within the master's degree programme teach social skills, willingness to cooperate, and communication skills. Students learn how to work successfully in groups and how to lead teams in a creative and motivational manner. As a result, students should be able to qualify for such leadership and management tasks much more quickly than the up to ten years of work experience that is usually required. The relevant branches of industry are seeking graduates who, in addition to a technical degree, also have the type of training offered by this master’s degree programme.
