OVERVIEW
This Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management course runs in 2016/17.
Quantity surveyors have exciting and challenging roles. Their involvement in construction projects begins at the feasibility stage, continues through the detailed design and construction stages and often continues when the project is completed. Consequently no two days are the same.
The Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management course will teach you how to blend traditional design skills with modern technologies whilst giving you the skills necessary to help you become a highly-trained professional in this very demanding but rewarding discipline.
If you choose this course you will benefit from:
- An accredited course leading to membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB);
- academic staff who are active researchers and consultants in their field and have professional industrial experience which they bring into their teaching;
- studying with a wide range of other professional disciplines in an integrated Department of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Building, reflecting the modern interdisciplinary nature of construction projects;
- integrated project work, running through each year of the course, where theory is put into practice as soon as it is learned;
- opportunities to apply for industrial placements with a range of local and regional companies where you can exercise your technical skills in a professional environment;
- further study and specialisation is available by studying a PhD or one of our MSc courses;
- a course that achieved an overall satisfaction of 100% in the national Student Survey (NSS) 2014.
