Management and Control of the Building Operation



The aim of the study programme Facility Management is to deepen theoretical and practical knowledge of the management and care of modern buildings and their users. The study programme is designed for graduates of technical, economic and legal programmes, as well as for experts. The programme reflects the current demands on material, construction, energy, technology and operational-economical solutions of modern buildings in social and managerial contexts. Modern trends in the management and operation of buildings are characterized by increased complexity, reduced energy intensity, and reduced environmental impact within so-called sustainable development. At the same time, the importance of safe operation of buildings is increasing. Emphasis is placed on fire safety, resistance of buildings against extreme effects (explosions, floods, vehicle crashes) and protection of users.

What will I learn

The study programme Facility Management is multidisciplinary, as it includes courses focused on technical, environmental, economic and managerial disciplines, which enable graduates to manage investment portfolios as well as individual properties. Part of the study is mandatory professional practical training completed at one of the industrial partners, or another appropriate company chosen by the student. Industrial partners include important local and multinational construction companies and development groups, such as Intercora, as well as cities and large companies owning or managing extensive real estate assets - e.g. Škoda Auto a.s., Prague Airport a.s., etc.


Graduates find employment in development companies, property management departments, and state institutions, as well as at financial institutions dealing with loans for construction investments. Graduates have the necessary skills to represent a future owner or user in selecting the right property for an acquisition and to secure funds for an investment. Moreover, they can manage the functionality and operational optimization of future buildings at the stage of commissioning. Graduates ensure facility management and cooperate with project teams and implementation companies during construction and reconstruction works. Experts in this profession have been demanded on the labour market for a long time.
