Masters degrees in Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management provide advanced postgraduate training in the financial management of project design and construction, for clients and contractors.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject. Appropriate work experience may also be accepted.
Quantity surveyors are responsible for the supervision of all financial aspects of a given project, from initial estimates, to ongoing cost analysis, right through to the final acquisition of materials and labour.
It is to this end that you will receive training in the practice of procurement, construction contracts, cost management, and information technology such as creating a sufficient BIM (Business Information Model). You will also explore the wider business of the built environment and its economic influences, including physical, legal and technological considerations.
With a degree in this field, you may wish to specialise in areas such as commercial management, sustainable property development, or property taxation. Experience gained from your Masters would also provide excellent preparation for further research at PhD level.
