Description

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.

Who is this course designed for?

This course is aimed at professionals and graduates wishing to pursue a career in quantity surveying.
