This course is aimed at professionals and graduates wishing to pursue a career in quantity surveying. It is also suitable for those wishing to ultimately pursue a career in construction project management, or construction management, through a quantity surveying route. It is suitable for prospective students who don't necessarily have a background in construction. This course can act as a route into quantity surveying or construction management for non-cognate professionals and graduates wishing to make a career change, or with a non-construction related qualification.
Our MSc Quantity Surveying course develops the contract and cost management skills needed to become a professional construction cost manager; a role that sits at the heart of the construction process. Quantity surveyors aim to minimise the costs of a project and enhance value for money, while still achieving the required standards and quality.
