We aim to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to i) participate in real estate and infrastructure developments, ii) analyse building development proposals, iii) appraise contemporary building science and engineering techniques, iv) advise on appropriate means of procurement, v) pursue financial control of construction projects and vi) apply a multi-disciplinary approach to the management of construction processes.
The construction industry has been one of the major drivers of the economies of Hong Kong and mainland China. This trend is expected to continue in view of recent major infrastructure developments in Hong Kong. Surveyors will find career opportunities in many areas including real-estate development, construction, building economics, law, contracts, design, maintenance, project and facilities management and finance. Graduates of this major are expected to be in high demand.
