Facilities and Property Management - Educational Opportunities

As one of the largest campus departments, and one that impacts the PSU community, on the whole, every day, FPM is in a unique position to support the learning environment of the university. The educational opportunities we offer provide applied learning experiences for the campus and support FPM and PSU’s overarching mission and values.

Educational Partners

FPM’s scope of work and ability to directly impact our campus community makes our department an excellent partner for PSU students, faculty, and courses. We can partner with community-based learning assignments, capstone courses, and extracurricular groups on projects that are based in the needs of FPM staff. Our opportunities are often related to engineering, architecture, real estate, and environmental science, among others topics. Please feel free to contact us if you have another group or type of project you’d like to work with us on!
