Compare 2 Master of Science Programs in Building Maintenance

A Master of Science, also known as an MSc, is a graduate degree with a focus in a discipline that is usually heavy in math and science. Completion of such a program is the next step in a post-secondary education after a bachelor’s degree.

What is an MSc in Building Maintenance? This program is generally designed around the study of those tasks and policies that are required to maintain a structure to the highest possible standards. It may include such focuses as architecture and design; systems upkeep, such as heating and ventilation; electrical grid, landscaping and grounds maintenance; and regular construction and refurbishment. It may also cover topics such as sustainable design, leadership and management skills, as well as business administration.

The benefits of a master’s degree extend beyond your career. You’ll likely learn such valuable skills as best construction practices, organization and time management. These skills are useful at any career level in construction and also transfer well to other industries.

The cost of a master’s degree can vary widely depending on location. A program consisting only of a traditional classroom format may differ in cost from an online program as well. Your institution can give you an estimated cost for the specific program you choose.

Careers in building maintenance abound and are limited only by your desires. You might choose the traditional path, working in construction or a related industry as a project manager or construction manager for a large corporation or for a small business. Alternatively, you could seek a position as a property manager for a development or property firm. There are also options in writing and editing for construction-themed publications, as well as marketing, sales, and administration within the industry.

An MSc in Building Maintenance is likely available to you no matter where you live. Your local colleges and universities might offer such a program, or you may find one online at a school of your choice.
