• Process and Project Systems
• Financial and Risk Management
You will be assessed through:
• Written coursework (100%)
• Continuous informal assessment by your tutors
As a qualified mechanical and electrical quantity surveyor, you could find employment in the building sector or specialist fields including nuclear power.
There is currently a severe skills shortage in the UK for quantity surveyors with expertise in mechanics and electrics.
Consequently, this course has a 100% graduate employment record.
