Bachelor of Quantity Surveying

PROGRAMME OUTLINE

Project development is an investment that involves considerable sum of money and time.  Clients will expect their project to generate values from their investment.  They also expect value for money from their projects which involve the element of time, cost and quality.  These objectives can be achieved through technical knowledge and professional competency, economics evaluation, effective cost management and selection of appropriate construction procurement with efficient and effective contract management.  The role of quantity surveyor through their education, training and experience will contribute to the effective management of construction cost, project procurement and contract administration as well as giving advice on development economics and contractual matters.

The programme has been designed to offer graduates the opportunity to operate within the existing framework of the Quantity Surveying discipline, the construction industry and related fields.  At a personal level, the graduate will be stimulated to adopt a professional and ethical approach that will allow personal development, foster self-respect and improve career aspirations.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

  • To provide graduates with solid foundation in management and technical knowledge, skills and capabilities in the field of Quantity Surveying.
  • To produce graduates who are effective problem solver, knowledgeable in applying logical, critical and creative thinking to a range of problems.
  • To provide graduates with a board knowledge, leadership and managerial skills which are necessary for the effective delivery of construction projects.
  • To produce graduates capable of executing their responsibilities with professionalism and capable of lifelong learning in the pursuit of personal development and betterment of society.

Bachelor of Science in Construction

PROGRAMME OUTLINE

Modern construction projects are known for their complexity in design and speed of execution. They require significant utilization of resources such as materials, manpower, equipment and finance. Most of the projects are performed under conditions of scarcity of resources and suffers from uncertainty in their supply. Work delays will result in increasing costs since there is an intricate time-cost relationship for every project. The need for proper planning and management of construction can never be over-emphasised.

The Bachelor of Science in Construction curriculum is designed to provide a solid academic base and professional expertise in the discipline of construction management, and to critically address the present and evolving needs of the construction industry. In order to perform successfully in the construction industry, students must develop an understanding of the technical aspects of construction while applying construction management practices and tools to maintain control and provide informed, optimal decisions. The programme focuses on the understanding of construction technology, construction management and production management processes. The programme also addresses the generic skills and capabilities necessary to compete in the employment market.

The programme addresses a combination of engineering technology, construction techniques and management. It is designed to prepare graduates for managerial positions in the construction industry. At a personal level, the programme will inculcate professional and ethical approach that will foster the graduates’ personal development, self-respect and career aspirations.
