From blueprints to “green” jobs

Lecture about energy costs

As energy costs increase and facilities become more complex, the demand for knowledgeable facility managers is on the rise. The facility management program at Missouri State helps meet this demand by developing future facility managers who understand how to control building costs and oversee building systems.

Facility management also allows you to work within an area you love in a non-traditional way. For example, perhaps you love sports but are not a professional athlete. Facility management provides you with the opportunity to work in a sports venue while promoting sustainable building practices at the same time.
