THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (PROJECT & FACILITIES MANAGEMENT) (HONOURS) PROGRAMME
The Department will offer a B.Sc. (Project & Facilities Management) (Honours) undergraduate programme in the full-time mode with effect from the 2006-07 academic year. The programme prepares graduates for the new challenges and career opportunities in the built environment and the broader economy in Singapore and the South-East and East Asia region.
The B.Sc. (Project & Facilities Management) programme prepares graduates to be industry leaders who make decisions, shape policies, solve strategic and operational problems, and implement best management practices in the built environment. Emphasis is placed on new knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to manage projects and facilities in both domestic and international markets. To enable graduates to be agile managers and leaders who are adept at anticipating and responding to change, the programme focuses on time management, cost management, quality management, risk management, procurement and dispute management, and strategic facilities management. The programme is also underpinned by a strong foundation in the relevant science and technology. Extensive use is made of local and international case studies in classroom learning and project assignments. Students undergo internship, arranged by the department, to gain industrial experience, locally and overseas.
The Student Exchange Programme allows the student to spend one semester in an approved overseas university offering a similar programme. It provides students with overseas learning experience in a different cultural setting. Modules completed at overseas universities under the exchange programme will earn credits toward the NUS degree for the purpose of graduation.
Project and Facilities Management graduates find a wide range of employment opportunities in project development, project management, consulting and contracting firms as well as organisations in the public sector. Graduates enter good careers in both Singapore and overseas as project managers, facilities managers, and quantity surveyors among other positions. They are also able to contribute to projects on which a total building performance approach is adopted.
