What are the requirements in becoming a facility maintenance engineer?
I am a sophomore student. I am taking the course aviation and right now I am taking the concepts of engineering and I don't know if I should be taking this classes to become a facility maintenance engineer. Also when I go to college, what am I going to take and what things do I need? #engineering #career-planning #facility #maintenance
A facilities maintenance engineer needs a broad range of systems knowledge. Courses or training in Electrical, Mechanical, HVAC, Plumbing, General Construction are helpful. There are also several Facilities organizations that you might want to check out (http://www.ifma.org/, https://www.redvector.com, www.boma.org), that can provide information on various disciplines that lead up to being a facilities manager (a worthwhile next step from a facilities maintenance engineer that you might also want to look at in your career planning). In addition to the more functional, system based education, strong fundamentals in math and business administration will be important, so consider them in your education planning.
