It was another exciting sneak peak to the world of facility management for a new generation of students. Conceived 50 years ago by AFE Fellow Eric Bergtraun, the format remains the same. Professional hosts are paired with students for a day of job shadowing. It may sound simple, but the experience has transformed the lives and career paths of several generations of Silicon Valley facility managers.

This video provides an overview of the event and highlights the students’ enthusiasm about what they learned from the facilities professionals.

About Michael Bukay, MS

Hello! I'm Mike Bukay, founder of Michael Bukay & Associates. Much of my career has been spent as a consultant/troubleshooter/instructor in the field of high purity industrial water treatment. During this time I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of clients including IBM, Intel, Electric Power Research Institute, Genentech, Hewlett Packard, Advanced Micro Devices, and many others. These experiences provide me with a solid foundation for the operation and maintenance requirements, and training needs, for process-critical industrial equipment. After 18 years of consulting work, I decided to follow my passion to make movies. I took classes and started making movies. Now, we produce a wide variety of videos. I love the work!
