Course summary

Course Overview

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.

Assessment

Assessments used within these Programmes are normally formative or summative. In the former assessment is designed to ensure students become aware of their strengths and weaknesses. Typically, such assessment will take the form of practical exercises where a more hands-on approach shows student’s ability on a range of activities.

Traditional formal time-constrained assessment is by means of tests and examinations, normally of two-hour duration. Examinations are a traditional method of verifying that the work produced is the students’ own work.

To help authenticate student coursework, some modules require that the student and lecturer negotiate the topic for assessment on an individual basis, allowing the lecturer to monitor progress.

Career Opportunities

These programmes combine academic study with the application of professional skills and competencies. They will expose you to the educational requirements necessary to embrace the highest industry standards; this by developing your knowledge and skills of building design, property, building pathology (building defects), as well as in economic, legal, technical, design and management, subjects so essential in the care of high value built assets and facilities.

They will prepare you for work as a professional surveyor and to apply for membership of the leading built environment professional bodies including the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Chartered Institute of Building, and Association of Building Engineers. In addition to professional and technical skills specific to building surveying, presentation, communication and team working skills, essential in everyday business, will be covered.
