Facilities Management AAS

The Facilities Management AAS degree (AAS_FCMT) is offered at LSC-Kingwood. For more information, please contact the Facilities Management Department.

Program Description

A comprehensive curriculum leads to a two-year associate of applied science degree. Students interested in a less comprehensive program should consider the one-year design essentials certificate program.

The interior design associate of applied science degree program includes both classroom instruction and hands-on experience dealing with typical residential and commercial design problems. The well-stocked labs are equipped with computers, drafting tables, color plotter, and an up-to-date resource library with catalogues and samples for student use. All courses in the interior design curriculum have been fully accredited by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA).

The internship program allows students to work with prominent designers throughout the greater Houston area. The program has a very active student chapter of ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) and NKBA, offering networking and educational opportunities with professional interior designers.

The two-year associate's degree in facilities management prepares students for an entry-level position in this field. A combination of design and business courses introduces students to the responsibilities involved in the effective management and maintenance of commercial properties and venues. Management courses highlight skills and knowledge necessary for business, while design courses focus on the built environment and its impact on workers and visitors. A supervised internship in the final semester of the program allows students to work with professional facilities managers and experience first-hand the daily complexities and variety of duties encountered in this fast-growing profession.

The general education core and many design classes will transfer to a variety of colleges and universities. Contact a counselor or faculty member at any of the colleges for specific information and to obtain the recommended sequencing of courses.
