Programme Overview

The Graduate Certificate in Facilities Management (GCFMT) is an industry collaborative programme that is aligned with the Industry Transformation Map (ITM) and the SkillsFuture Framework for the Built Environment. The Grad programme will be the first in Singapore that focuses on both the managerial (project, risk, finance, asset, and facility) and the technical (sustainability, design for manufacturing and assembly (DfMA), productivity and integrated digital delivery (IDD)) aspects of the Built Environment sector. The programme aims to equip FM graduates and practitioners with new skills and competencies to manage complex and large scale building assets in a sustainable and resilient manner.

The programme is curated in a stackable and modular way so that students can choose to study individual courses which can be accumulated to obtain a graduate certificate, a graduate diploma or a full master's degree. This flexible arrangement will benefit busy working adults who may not be able to commit a long period of time to obtain a full graduate qualification.

Each course is 5 credit units (cu) and can be taken on a stand-alone basis. Upon successful completion of 15 cu of coursework with a minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 2.5, the GCFMT will be awarded.
