Conestoga’s Architecture – Project and Facility Management (APFM) is a unique interdisciplinary program combining knowledge and skills of architecture, engineering, project management, facility management, and business for the development of better buildings and environments. The program emphasizes a holistic approach to the built environment considering the full building life cycle, including strategic planning, pre-design, design, construction, occupancy, and re-use, considering the owner, the occupant, and the environment.

A significant aspect of the four-year coursework is a focus on managing teamwork and the ability to effectively communicate, including written, verbal, and graphic content. Through their coursework and co-op experiences, an APFM graduate is uniquely equipped to guide and manage the decision-making process across the life cycle of a building.

The APFM degree fosters a graduate who can contribute to an organization and the building industry in a meaningful way across a wide range of stakeholders and phases of a building project. This agility provides breadth, flexibility, and transferable skills to their future careers, as well as the opportunity to pursue further graduate studies in related fields.

What You’ll Learn

  • Demonstrate and apply an understanding of cultural values and architectural theories of function and form in the context of codes, regulations, and their significance to a built environment.
  • Apply and demonstrate the use of methods, materials, specifications, costing, and theories of building construction in architectural design and construction, through lab and industrial-based projects.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of building systems including structural, heating, ventilation, air-conditioning (HVAC), plumbing, electrical, and automation, and work with appropriate persons to creatively implement and coordinate these systems in design, construction, and project and facility management.
  • Collect, process, manage, and manipulate empirical and nonempirical research about human factors, environmental forces, and technologies, and apply this towards efficient management, maintenance, occupancy change, and renovation of the built environment in an environmentally conscientious manner.

I was trained in India and began my nursing career in Canada as a PSW. The program at Conestoga for internationally educated nurses helped me get my license as registered nurse in Canada before I moved on to get my master's in nursing. I then trained to be a nurse practitioner.

The program covers the basics of nursing in Canada and advanced subjects like cardiac nursing and how to interpret ECGs, which normally is not offered as a separate course.

The teachers are great and you get to learn from people with different backgrounds in differ clinical areas. Canadian nurses have a bigger scope than nurses in any other country. Learning about these areas plus getting a clinical placement was a huge advantage. The program also supported me as a I managed family and getting used to living in Canada.
