Program description

Building Surveying (BSc)

These Building Surveying programmes concern themselves with buildings and their performance in use, whether as a capital asset or operational facility. The discipline embraces building design and specification, project management, legal, cultural and economic factors as well as environmental issues.

Outcomes of the programmes include; the ability to analyse a range of surveying problems whilst delivering practical solutions; provide an in-depth understanding of the technical, economic, legal and organisational aspects of surveying and equip you with a range of skills as required by surveyors in professional practice or within large organisations.

The programmes contain some modules that are delivered in common with other related programmes within the School i.e., Architectural Technology, Quantity Surveying, Property Management, Project and Construction Management etc, but only where these provide the essential foundations or there is a need for an inter-disciplinary approach to be taken.
