The key objective of the Land Economic programme offered by Makerere University is to provide admitted students with a sound theoretical and practical base to enable them conduct valuations, investment reports and optimally manage land, landed property and real estate developments. They should also be able to professionally identify, manage and value landed property and other specialized assets.


Graduates of this programme are expected to gain employment in both the private and public sector. The major input of the programme is to train valuation surveyors with sufficient skills for the public and private sectors: government ministries, local authorities, banks, mortgage institutions, departments, parastatals, construction firms, and private consultancies in valuation surveying.

Other supporting objectives are to:

  • Create capacity at Makerere University for training of valuation surveyors;
  • Reduce the human resource gap in the valuation surveying profession;
  • Incorporate modern methods of valuation, computerized assessment, and analysis.
  • Improve the gender and generational imbalances in the profession.

The training of valuation professionals for better and more rational assessment and valuation of land and real estate properties in Uganda will significantly contribute to overall poverty reduction in the long term. Laboratory and computer training in the curriculum provide hand-on opportunities to apply knowledge to solving practical problems of engineering. There are also practical training components in the curriculum which introduce students to actual field practice.
