Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes

The programme aims to train senior technicians for the building surveying, quantity surveying and general practice surveying professions. Students are also equipped with the necessary foundation knowledge to pursue further professional education in surveying disciplines.

 

Programme Characteristics

The programme has been designed to equip students with the technical skills and knowledge of the construction and real estate industry at paraprofessional level. To cater for the imminent changes of the industry, elements on Building Information Modelling (BIM) have been emphasised and incorporated into a number of subjects and project work, to prepare our graduates to take the lead in the current business environment of the construction and real estate industry. The programme also includes elements that foster students’ abilities to pursue further study and lifelong learning after graduation.

Curriculum

Year One: Student will take a number of General University Requirements (GUR) subjects including languages and general education. Subjects related to core professional knowledge will be included in the curriculum in Semester 2. Safety workshop practice, construction drawing preparation and information management subjects are also included.

 

Year Two: Students will typically choose a specific stream (BS/QS/GP), and a set of elective subjects for corresponding streams must be taken in addition to common core subjects for all students. Students are also required to complete a final year project, in which they must integrate knowledge from different fields of study. BIM applications are also emphasised in the final year project.

 

Between Years One and Two, students are required to complete a “2 training-credit” summer training programme, organised in association with the Industrial Centre (IC) of the University. This comprises of elements on engineering design, drawing preparing (with BIM), cost planning and control and project management and execution.
