The purpose of the internship experience is to provide a transition from the university curriculum to a practical application found in a professional Facility Management setting. Theories of facility management and practical applications are explored and tested by the student under close supervision of the cooperating organization and a faculty member from Ferris State University. Evaluation of the experience is conducted by the organization, the student, and the faculty member. The student is encouraged to continually review personal knowledge, skills, accomplishments, and professional growth as they relate to preparation for entry into the profession of Facility Management.
