The full 4 years (3 years taught + 1 year industrial training) can be completed entirely in Sri Lanka, providing an opportunity for students seeking an alternative to travelling overseas for higher education. Students also have the option of completing part of their studies at University of Salford, UK, or attend their graduation in the UK with other Salford graduands.
This course is modular in structure and combines academic study with project work. Students will develop a sound knowledge of technical, economic, legal, and management aspects of quantity surveying, including the use of computing resources to financially manage the development, construction and long-term operation of buildings.
In addition, project management skills such as learning how to select, manage and coordinate resources needed for the completion of a construction project will be taught. The final year industrial placement facilitates a smooth transition into the professional work force.
The course duration is dependent on the entry level at which the student is assessed as eligible.
