Facilities Technology Services
Facilities Technology Services help to bridge the gap between University Facilities and the various technology systems, which are utilized to monitor, service and maintain our growing Campus. These technology efforts were formerly organized under the Facilities Management Information Systems (FMIS) area, which operated from 2006 thru 2013.
Some of these complex facilities systems include building automation systems (BAS), electrical monitoring systems or SCADA, and enterprise-class business support systems. University Facilities also works with the Campus design and project teams on all new building and renovation projects, by programming facilities and related technology systems for MSU campus facilities. University Facilities strives to introduce improved and sustainable practices into all its projects and University operations.
