29th of January – 04th of February 2015

Sustainable Urban Development – Serviced Housing

Content: Serviced housing, sustainable real estate development, market and location analysis, sustainable buildings and building services, occupant concept, aspects of economy and finance and cooperative organization structures

The 4th Facility Management & Real Estate Management WinterSchool will focus on the topic of Serviced Housing in line with the 17th FM&REM WinterCongress 2015. We offer for the participating students the opportunity to work in international teams on an interdisciplinary case study related to realistic professional practice. The students get a holistic task, which aims at the development of a mixed used area for commercial and housing property. The teams can demonstrate and improve their knowledge and skills in engineering, business, facility management, finance, architecture, hospitality management, real estate management and project management.

Case-related lectures are offered to cover possible gaps in knowledge and expertise. International lecturers and professional experts share their knowledge with the students in framework of coaching sessions, so that the students can individually request support of a specialist where needed.

Furthermore the FM&REM WinterSchool at the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tyrol is a terrific chance to get contacts in the whole world and for learning to work in international teams as well as to get to know the different views of the facility and real estate branch.
