Facilities Management

The University of Sydney is one of the few universities in Australia that offers a multidisciplinary approach to facilities management, combining industry knowledge from sustainable design and building services. In my final year of study, I acquired an internship with international real estate firm Jones Lang LaSalle, in the Property and Asset Management division.

Facilities Management

I have something of a varied background. Over the last decade I’ve divided my time between occupational health and safety and the development, sales and marketing of a computerised maintenance management package – rexisoft.

I’ve always been a very ‘hands on’ kind of person. While experience is valued, having a formal qualification can really help. This degree was a particularly good fit with my maintenance package business. It has allowed me to meet industry practitioners, both as fellow students and lecturers to flesh out theory and confirm industry best practise. I have been able to use what I have learned to improve my product.

Gaining this degree not only provides credibility for me, but also for my product. The highlight of the degree has definitely been the people. I have been in groups that have been great. I am working with people who want to know more and are willing to put in the effort. The discussion has been energetic and the debate stimulating. I’ve been learning in a collaborative environment which makes it all the more interesting"
