Quantity Surveyors are an essential link between the designer and contractor on construction projects, providing key advice on costs and contracts.
Quantity Surveyors require a wide range of skills and knowledge covering the financial, legal, managerial, economic and communicative aspects of a project from inception to completion.
These accreditations provide graduates access to RICS and CIOB membership via the graduate routes. All second year full-time students have the opportunity to spend one week in Europe as part of their studies.
A 24 week industrial placement is incorporated into year 3 of the programme. The industry placement allows students to understand the application of their taught skills and benefit from work based learning. Full-time students in Year 3 also take part in an "Interact" design project, working as a team with students from the Glasgow School of Art, the University of Glasgow and the University of the West of Scotland to develop a network of contacts and solve a specific design problem.
Graduates from the Quantity Surveying (Hons) programme from Glasgow Caledonian University have been recruited by leading organisations in the construction and property sectors such as BAM Group, Laing O'Rourke, Lend Lease, Balfour Beatty, Turner and Townsend and Doig+Smith.
