Summary

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. You'll learn about the various procurement options available in the UK and overseas, and develop approaches that seek to maximise client value, while reducing cost for construction projects.

This course is aimed at professionals and graduates wishing to pursue a career in quantity surveying. It is also suitable for those wishing to ultimately pursue a career in construction project management, or construction management, through a quantity surveying route. It is suitable for prospective students who don't necessarily have a background in construction. This course can act as a route into quantity surveying or construction management for non-cognate professionals and graduates wishing to make a career change, or with a non-construction related qualification.

**Key features**
- Have the option of taking a professional or industrial internship, which counts towards your Masters qualification.

- Benefit from our team of expert academic staff who have established links to industry and significant experience of working in practice.

- Hear from visiting industry and academic experts, some of whom are NTU alumni, who will be teaching parts of the modules, providing a ‘real life’ perspective on the topics you will be studying.

- Study trips to live sites in the UK and abroad are included in your course fees, designed to help develop your understanding of theory in practice. Previous study trip destinations have included Vienna, Frankfurt and Prague.
