The BCA Academy will offer a new postgraduate programme in facility and environment management.
It said the programme will enhance building professionals’ capabilities to manage and maintain buildings in Singapore including those that are built with “green” features.
The Master of Science in Facility and Environment Management Programme is being offered under a tie-up with University College London, UCL.
The Building and Construction Authority said local professionals who are given a place in this programme will enjoy a 60-per cent tuition fee subsidy.
The two-year part-time programme will have a ‘blended learning’ approach – a combination of traditional face-to-face teaching by visiting UCL lecturers and distance learning using one-to-one Skype tutorials, podcasts and video seminars. It will comprise eight modules and a dissertation.
The programme will start in September.
