What will I learn?

Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes

This challenging programme aims to develop all-round and flexible graduates with fundamental knowledge and practical skills in the inter-disciplinary professions of land management, real estate development and construction project management. The Programme underpins surveying studies with courses in economics and finance, law, management and technology and cultivates a global mindset with international studies in the real estate and construction markets in the Chinese mainland and overseas.

Students are well prepared to enter the professions of building surveying, general practice surveying (real estate), planning and development, property and facility management and quantity surveying (construction economics), with the full potential to take leading and strategic roles in the profession and business of land, property and construction.

Programme Characteristics

This is a professional degree programme with a global and practical perspective. Students learn about economics, law, finance and investment, management and technology in the construction and real estate context. Problem identification, problem solving and decision making form the programme's focus.

There is close contact with the industry through guest lectures and company and site visits. Students undertake group and individual practical projects throughout their studies. We also have a mentorship scheme in which students are matched with employers and senior members of the professions to gain practical insights into professional practice.

We operate a study exchange programme to provide students with opportunities to study abroad for one academic semester at Loughborough University (UK), the Queensland University of Technology (Australia), the University of Florida (USA) and the Georgia Institute of Technology (USA).

We also operate Work-Integrated Education in collaboration with the University to help students find placements.
