Facilities Engineering Management (FEM) 1 is part of the Facilities Engineering Management Diploma program, designed to provide facility maintenance management professionals with the knowledge you need to help your facility reach its goals. In FEM 1, you will concentrate on approaches to facility management, how to achieve quality in plant commissioning and operation, facility process energy efficiency and sustainability, chillers and cooling systems, and electrical systems.
Tailor your learning experience to your needs and choose from the following topics:
- Plant renovation: contract terms and conditions
- Alternate dispute resolution: ways to stay out of court
- HVAC operation and efficiency
- Hydronic systems
- Power-quality solutions
- Chillers and cooling towers
- Process-energy analysis
- T&B building commissioning
Three one-week courses–totaling 96 contact hours--will provide you with critical, money-saving skills in the areas of maintenance, electrical, mechanical, environmental, health and safety, construction, energy conservation, and management material. The weekly sessions, or equivalent hours, do not have to be taken in sequence. Upon the completion of the requirements, you will be expected to make a final presentation (15 minutes) on your special experiences in the field of facilities management. You will then be awarded a non-degree diploma from NC State's Office of Professional Development.
