We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Surveying Science equip postgraduates with the skills to measure altitudes, angles and distances of land surfaces which are intended for use or development.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Engineering or Urban Planning.
Training typically includes the use of geographic information systems (GIS), photogrammetry and satellite positioning systems such as GPS, laser scanning, referencing systems production and the modelling of spatial data. Most courses offer the opportunity for specialisation, which postgraduates may utilise for future careers.
For example, you may wish to focus your studies for a career in building surveying, learning to diagnose building defects and refurbish existing buildings. It also includes managing maintenance, procurement, monitoring contracts, and facilities management.
Alternatively, you may concentrate on real estate. Training may include learning to valuate land and commercial property, acquire sites for building, evaluate property proposals, ensure compliance with planning policy frameworks, and manage property assets.
Other careers include urban planning and development, rural planning, and construction law.
