Project development is an investment that involves a considerable sum of money and time. Clients will expect their project to generate values from their investment. They also expect value for money from their projects which involve the element of time, cost, and quality. These objectives can be achieved through technical knowledge and professional competency, economic evaluation, effective cost management and selection of appropriate construction procurement with efficient and effective contract management. The role of quantity surveyors through their education, training, and experience will contribute to the effective management of construction cost, project procurement, and contract administration as well as giving advice on development economics and contractual matters.
The programme has been designed to offer graduates the opportunity to operate within the existing framework of the Quantity Surveying discipline, the construction industry, and related fields. At a personal level, the graduate will be stimulated to adopt a professional and ethical approach that will allow personal development, foster self-respect and improve career aspirations.
