Bachelor of Science (Hons) Quantity Surveying

The BSc (Honours) Quantity Surveying programme aims to provide fundamental knowledge and develop an advanced understanding of the theory and practice of construction technology, law, procurement, construction contracts, measurement, construction management, financial management , business management, information technology and project management in the wider business and built environment sectors.

The programme will provide opportunities for the critical appreciation and understanding of the significant factors constraining the effective management and development of the built environment, e.g. physical, legal, economic, sustainable and technological factors.

There will be opportunities for collaborative and individual student-centred study on project tasks that simulate real-world working practices, in order to develop analytical, critical and problem solving skills such that they can define, investigate and analyse problems, form judgements, make decisions and demonstrate the acquisition of such qualities.

The program aims to provide a well-balanced education which will allow you to develop your full academic potential at first degree level and in doing so to facilitate the development of independent logical thought, and judgement. In addition, this program will offer a basis for general professional experience and to encourage a consciousness of the professional, business and commercial environment, to prepare you for the transition from Higher Education to employment within a professional context.
