This part-time programme provides an opportunity for non-quantity surveying graduates to become educated for a career in the construction industry in quantity surveying/construction economics in Ireland and abroad. It has been developed as an alternative route into the quantity surveying profession other than by way of the traditional honours undergraduate degree. The programme is presented within the School of Surveying and Construction Management in the College of Engineering and Built Environment in DIT. The maximum intake of students each year will be 25 students. The content of the programme, delivered over 2 ½ years (5 Semesters) includes subjects pertinent to the practice of Quantity Surveyors and construction economics professionals. The programmeís focus is strongly oriented towards quantity surveying practice, building measurement, the management and economics of development.
In these new turbulent times the issue of controlling and managing costs within the construction industry is of paramount importance to any private of public sector client.
