Course summary

The Quantity Surveying BSc(Hons) course at Huddersfield looks at the latest surveying practice, both in the UK and internationally. The course focuses particularly on the role of Quantity Surveyor, aiming to give you the skills and experience to find employment in the global construction industry. Quantity Surveyors can take on a number of roles in the construction industry. Working on behalf of contractors, consultants and clients, they manage the commercial and contractual aspects of the construction process. The course is tailored to meet the demands of the employers and is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB). Why study Quantity Surveying?

  • This course gives you the chance to develop the skills you need to work in construction teams, applying the latest processes and technologies.
  • Two crucial tools for today’s Quantity Surveyor are Lean Construction and Building Information Modelling (BIM). Our course will give you the chance to explore both areas and understand their relevance to construction.
  • Opportunities to work collaboratively with students across other courses in Architecture and Built Environment may give you experience and understanding in how to work in multidisciplinary teams.
Lean Construction focuses on delivering minimum cost and maximum value for a construction project, looking at how the process of design, construction and end-use of a building is managed. Building Information Modelling is used to enhance Lean Construction, giving surveyors tools to manage the costs of materials and labour in projects. On the course you’ll be able to explore both areas to understand how you could deliver better value for clients, wherever your career may take you. As a student on the Surveying (Quantity Surveying) BSc(Hons), you’ll be studying with peers from other subjects such as Construction Project Management, Architecture and Architectural Technology. Surveying (Quantity Surveying) BSc(Hons) is part of a suite of courses that also includes Construction Project Management BSc(Hons). Once you’ve enrolled on one of the courses, you’re free to switch to one of the others (with the agreement of your tutors) between the first and second year if your interests change. You only have to apply for one course within the suite we offer.
