9th FM & REM WinterSchool – sustainable urban development
International, innovative, interdisciplinary – the Facility & Real Estate Management WinterSchool at the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol is a very special course for the international students and has been given several awards.
Around 200 international students come to Kufstein every year for the FM & REM WinterSchool to work on a sustainable real estate project. This year, the 220 students developed innovative utilization concepts for a student dormitory, factored in a plan with two construction phases, and created a cost calculation. Twenty-four teams tried to use their presentation to win customers over to their project.
Various specialty areas and nationalities
The students come from various specialty areas: technicians, facility managers, architects, real estate managers, and also geographers worked on the project. Participants from the USA, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, and Austria traveled to the WinterSchool.
“We are especially proud of our long-term international partnerships. Because of our international partnerships, the Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism and the Federal Ministry of Education, Science, and Research gave us the Sustainability Award along with the Inholland University of Applied Sciences, the Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, and Pratt Institute in New York,” explained the organizer of the FM & REM WinterSchool Sabrina Eitzinger, MA.
