About This Course

Facility Programming and Design moves through the process of defining a building-related need, evaluating the existing facility, exploring design solutions, and presenting a business case for the final project. This course is constructed from the viewpoint of the facility manager, and each step of the instruction and each assignment build to the final project and presentation. It is a requirement for the Construction Management degree and certificate students. It can also be used as an elective for undergraduate or graduate students pursuing degrees in architecture, civil engineering, facility management, interior design, housing studies, and other related majors.
