Best to work on client end - PM and FM. which has better benefits and shorter work hours if you're considering built industry.
The preception that M.Arch pays more that B.Eng(Civil) is just that. A preception.
Given the small market in SG, unless you are in big firm, with outstanding credentials, the starting pay for both is very similar. In some cases, a B.Eng will probably pay more, such as if you work for public agencies or for banks. Engineers across most disciplines are very popular with banks. Early progression for Archts is also slow, until you get your practising cert.

Back to the topic, in the built environment industry, you need to have at 5-8 experience to be a competent PM. PMs can be at contractor, consultant or client level. Contractor/consultant will require u to be technically trained, pay range from 5-10k depending on the project scale. For client side, can be either technical or others like, real estate, fac mgmt etc etc. Typically, pay progression may not be that great unless u have a large portfolio.

Therefore, i have been reconsidering my choice about Project and Facilities management and have been thinking about Architecture/Civil Engineering instead. One question, is there are significant difference between civil engineering and architecture? Because, they are in different faculties: Architecture in built environment, civil engineering in engineering. Please enlighten me about the specific differences... Also, if i pursue architecture, will my future job revolve around the design of blueprints of buildings/decision of required materials only? Thank you.

Unregistered the course on pfm teaches mainly on managment for construction buildings right? So how is your job so far?(previous post) is it enjoyable for your?

I am not so sure if i have that huge an interest to learn about construction, but it sounds interesting to deal with different projects every time, so...
is the construction industry very male dominated too?

Well firstly, FM is a profession that manages completed buildings more like maintenance of the building so that things runs smoothly. An experience building manager (10yrs) can earn 8k or more.

As for PM for main contractor, they will either wants a civil engineer which is registered with the engineer board but they will also look at a project management graduate too. It really depends on the main contractor. For PM, one can also be working for a developer, architecture firm or a consultancy firm.

I bet to differ that most will choose a civil engineer to be a PM as to those who possess a project management degree. I myself is having a project management degree and now a PM for one of the listed developer in Singapore. I have a team of consultants (architects, civil engineers, M&E engineers, ID etc) helping and advising me on the project but on the other hand one also needs a fair amount of experience in order to make a better decision. None of my colleagues is a civil engineers hahahaha........
