The 35-credit Master of Science program in Facilities Management (STEM) prepares graduates as professionals and problem solvers to assume executive responsibilities in the management of facilities and strategic planning.
Responsibilities include the assurance of a quality environment, cost-effective capital and operating investments, economically and environmentally sensitive operations, and the management of facilities and equipment as assets.
Pratt’s Facilities Management program can be completed in three semesters of fulltime study. All courses are offered in the evenings at the Pratt Manhattan campus. Fall and spring entrance are available. The program teaches sustainable practices and innovative approaches to emerging technologies and instills ethical values, which distinguish Pratt’s facilities management alumni as they lead the field’s efforts to advance the quality of the built environment.
