Control of Building related devices has been a priority these days. This helps us to manage the power and resources of the building thereby reducing the over-consumption and wastage of energy.

This can only be achieved by Building Management System (BMS) technology and Engineers /Technicians related to it. BMS field has a shortage of skilled technicians and engineers. So the demand for such technical personnel are always high.

Furthermore job prospects in BMS is high in Ghana and abroad due to automation of the building and industries, thereby providing opportunities in surveillance, security and energy management.
