However, modern-day quantity surveying, along with costing, now also involves management of the social, economical and technical issues at the heart of any construction project. On this course, you will take a proactive, hands-on approach both to fieldwork and to Building Information Modelling (BIM). WHY STUDY THIS COURSE? This course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Once you complete your studies and you have found your first job, you can begin training to become a Chartered Quantity Surveyor. The course is also accredited by the Board of Quantity Surveyors Malaysia (BQSM) giving you eligibility for registration.

This innovative course brings together the entrepreneurial skills of the property developer with the professional acumen of the quantity surveyor. SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE GAINED On this course you can visit sites and study locally based case studies that will introduce you to the professional markets and environments; you can attend and contribute to current debates by visiting guest speakers and you can venture overseas on a European field trip. You can also apply to do an optional year-long placement in industry which will put you ahead of the field when applying for graduate jobs. AFTER THE COURSE Working in property makes for an interesting, challenging and rewarding career. The roles our graduates have undertaken include: providing financial, management and strategic advice on land and property; establishing the market value of individual buildings and large-scale development projects; making investment decisions for future returns on property assets; networking with property stakeholders to provide best possible solutions; managing existing property in order to ensure the delivery of sustainable outcomes.
Your first year will introduce you to the construction industry as a whole, which will underpin your study of quantity surveying. In the second year, alongside developing your general construction studies, you will be able to study specific quantity surveying topics. In the third year your studies are steered towards preparation for professional placement once you have graduated. Consolidate the skills you have learnt and showcase them in your written dissertation as well as a piece of group work where you will be tasked to produce a ‘real’ project.
