Course summary

There is currently a severe skills shortage in the UK for quantity surveyors with expertise in mechanical and electrical installations. Qualified mechanical and electrical quantity surveyors find employment in the building sector or in specialist fields including nuclear power.

Studying this course will provide you with the skills demanded by clients who rely on a quantity surveyor’s specialist mechanical and electrical knowledge and judgement to keep a project running smoothly. This programme will equip you with a professional understanding of procurement, financial and risk management and lifecycle cost management, as they apply to the construction industry. In addition to formalising your knowledge of traditional quantity surveying, you’ll receive a solid grounding in cutting-edge developments applying to mechanical and electrical works.

As this full masters degree is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), you will be educated to the highest industry standards and are granted exemption from RICS academic entry requirements.

You will:

  • Organise and plan the procurement and financial management of construction projects
  • Be able to effectively manage and administer construction contracts
  • Lead and work effectively with project teams and communicate effectively in a variety of forms

Our online repository of learning material enables you to undertake self-directed study at your own convenience. Learning is driven by real-world problems with application to your workplace and job role.

ASSESSMENT:

You will be assessed through written coursework and through continuous informal assessment by your tutors.

CAREER LINKS:
