Surveying involves the precise measurement of spatial data - information that’s crucial to a huge range of construction projects, on land and offshore. On large building projects, surveyors are the first on site to establish the basic measurements and the last to leave, checking everything is in the right place. Surveyors are also in high demand, and this course will give you the skills to take advantage of a worldwide employment market. We have superb links with industry and run a regular programme of guest speakers. You’ll also visit major projects in London - one of the world’s most dynamic construction areas. You’ll undertake a 50-50 split of academic and practical work. This will involve fieldwork projects, including a residential scheme at the end of your first year, and classroom and laboratory exercises. You’ll also be able to apply for student membership of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors - an international qualifying body dedicated to the regulation, education and training of surveyors working in civil engineering.
