About

The Building Surveying (Hons) course at Anglia Ruskin University  will develop your skills in all aspects of surveying buildings. You’ll cover their design, specification and performance. You’ll also learn about inspection and analysis, how to recognise and tackle defects, and how to manage projects.

You’ll learn to appreciate, identify and understand technical problems in construction and develop an understanding of the surveyor’s role within wider economic, legal, social, political and environmental frameworks.

Learning to work well independently and as part of a team, and in safe and ethical ways, you’ll mix with people from other built-environment professions and develop a clear sense of professional responsibility.

You’ll use industry-standard equipment to learn how to conduct site surveys and property inspections. Our facilities include a materials and testing laboratory, an environmental science and design laboratory, and a surveying laboratory. We also have design and AutoCAD studios.

Careers

Skilled building surveying graduates are in demand, especially when they have experience of a variety of construction environments. When you graduate, you’ll have a wide choice of interesting careers, advising your clients on the potential and future use of their buildings.

A surveyor’s work is very varied; in the morning, you could be doing an inspection or supervising construction work on-site. In the afternoon, you could be writing reports in the office or advising clients on business tenancies.
