Especially in healthcare facilities the technical sector is highly specialized. The forward-looking concept of this generalized education offers technical- and facilityoriented managers the know-how to ask the “right” questions and make optimum decisions in their area of responsibility under consideration of patient oriented conditions.
Worldwide developments in the healthcare sector as well as restricted resources result in challenging future tasks for healthcare professionals with specialized knowledge in the technical management area within high-tech facilities. These tasks include planning, tendering, construction supervision, building inspection, maintenance and technical management of buildings, building- and medical-technical facilities and devices.
The technical management staff within a healthcare establishment, authorities, planners and service providers normally works together with an interdisciplinary board of directors, the commercial and medical management as well as with the nursing management. They bear a high degree of professional responsibility for these core processes in healthcare facilities.
