Mission and goals
The operational areas addressed by this Master of Science programme may be summarised in two skill profiles, gravitating around the economic-financial management (asset and property management) and technical-operational support services for the built-up environment management (facility management) areas. The objective of the course is to transmit to the student knowledge and skills in building technology and construction, in production and management engineering, in law, in economics, in information technology and in land planning; to provide methods and tools to be used for technical-economic evaluation on purchase or on designing the requalification of buildings.
Potential employment contexts for graduates in Building Management are: property companies, banks, banking foundations, insurance companies and, in general, companies characterised by an extremely significant amount of property; companies and public bodies managing public and private property assets; facility management companies; property fund management companies; property consulting forms and engineering companies and professional studios.
See http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/uploads/media/Management_of_Built_Environment_01.pdf Strongly interdisciplinary, the Master of Science in Management of Built Environment aims at preparing experts in the field of maintenance and adaptation over time of buildings, from an engineering/architectural (maintenance and requalification) and an economic (valorization and maintenance of property values over time) perspectives. Multidisciplinary knowledge and skills in the field of technical and economic appraisal for the designing and requalification of existing buildings are developed. The teaching regards a large set of courses in different disciplines, such as building technology and construction, production and management engineering, architecture, strongly rooted in the European and Italian tradition which created cities and buildings celebrated worldwide. The program prepares students to compete in the international markets in the field of technical and economic management of existing buildings and urban environment. Two specializations are available: 1) Technical maintenance and management; 2) Economic management.
Given the multidisciplinary set of competences, a number of job opportunities arises. Private and public real estate companies, banks and insurance companies, financial industry, and facility management companies are all natural professional progressions after graduation. The programme is taught in English.
