Pratt Shows: Design will display a composite of elements from a select group of students’ thesis presentations:
This course is a Capstone requirement for the facilities management program. MS facilities management students will demonstrate fulfillment of an approved scope of work showing analytical capacities and creative thinking skills that are expected of a facilities management professional by writing a research- or project-related thesis at the graduate level. The demonstration of knowledge may involve original research strategies, a work-related project, or a continuation of course-related work while in the facilities management program at Pratt Institute.
Students are required to provide a bound written submission and an oral presentation with a PowerPoint slide show to a jury of industry professionals for final reviews.
Pratt Shows will display a composite of elements from a select group of facilities management and real estate management (FM & REM) WinterSchool presentations.
The FM & REM WinterSchool is an international program in which students from the US, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, and other countries work together. Each year in winter, more than 200 students meet in Kufstein, Austria, for one week to develop a sustainable urban real estate project. Within teams of approximately 10, students work on a conceptual competition and receive an extensive project task that requires them to solve realistic challenges in real estate development, architectural design, facilities management, project management, energy management, and real estate marketing. Pratt students have participated in the WinterSchool since 2010.
Pratt Shows: Design is the Institute’s annual exhibition of design work by exceptional seniors and postgraduates from the Schools of Design, Architecture, and Art. The exhibition provides an opportunity to see a diverse range of what’s next in:
City and Regional Planning
Sustainable Environmental Systems
Urban Placemaking and Management
