There is a significant demand for surveying services and quality graduates. The programme provides a highly vocational-oriented surveying degree supported by practical studies and work-integrated learning placement.
It also provides a choice of two multiple specialisations to enhance professional expertise and employability: (1) Quantity Surveying and Property & Facility Management (QS and PFM) Stream; (2) Building Surveying, General Practice and Planning & Development (BS, GP and PD) Stream.
The programme covers the core surveying areas of construction technology, real estate and development management, land and construction law and real estate economics and investment, which back up the professional roles and tasks at planning, development, construction, and occupancy phases of the building life cycle. It also emphasises general education and work-integrated learning. Graduates from this programme will therefore be professionally competent and contribute to social and global issues.
Graduates will be employed in both public and private sectors as follows:
- Quantity surveyors: Architectural Services Department, Highways Department, Housing Department, Urban Renewal Authority, professional QS consultancy firms, developers, building and civil engineering contractors, insurance companies, etc.
- Property and facility management surveyors: Government Property Agency, developers, in-house service departments, property consultants, FM and property management companies, asset and property management companies, etc.
- Building surveyors: Buildings Department, Housing Department, Architectural Services Department, Hong Kong Housing Society, Urban Renewal Authority, developers, local and international property consultants, estates and technical departments in institutions and corporations, etc.
- General practice surveyors: Lands Department, Rating & Valuation Department, Housing Department, Government Property Agency, property and valuation consultants, developers, etc.
- Planning and development surveyors: Planning Department, town planning and development consultants, developers, etc.
- Master degrees in specialty areas such as construction project management, real estate investment, urban planning, housing management, transport planning and construction law.
- MPhil or PhD research studies in surveying related areas.
Year-1 entry students:
As a new programme, the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS) has provisionally approved the BSc (Hons) in Surveying as a cognate degree programme for acceptable graduates for admissions to the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) Scheme.
Before achieving the full accreditation, the degree is already accepted by the HKIS as a relevant degree for graduates to be admitted to sit for the APC, but they are required to go through a longer job training for one additional year.
The Programme has also achieved professional accreditation with the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) for its Quantity Surveying and Property & Facility Management Stream. Graduates of this Specialisation Stream will be eligible for admission to the Chartered Membership upon satisfactory completion of the practical experience requirements of the CIH.
Year-3 entry students:
Accreditation will be sought with the HKIS.
