A 24 week industrial placement is incorporated into year 3 of the Quantity Surveying (Hons) Quantity Surveying (Hons) programme at Glasgow Caledonian University . 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 programme 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.
