Programme Aims and Features
The BSc Surveying Programme was the first fully integrated undergraduate surveying course world-wide and as such has led the way in terms of surveying education. It covers the full spectrum of real estate and construction business, including land and property development, construction management, real estate finance and investment, facility management, and urban renewal. A significant difference between this and more conventional courses is the greater emphasis on a comprehensive academic underpinning and perspective required by all real estate and construction professionals.
The programme has two major components: the lecture courses and surveying studios. The lecture courses define the academic core of the programme whilst the studios provide an environment within which the interdisciplinary nature of the programme can be more fully explored and boundaries tested through an extensive use of real-life case studies and student centered project work.
The BSc Surveying Programme allows students in their Third Year of Studies to select one of the following two credit-bearing Discipline Electives: 1) Cities and Urban Development, which promotes international outreach and requires students to set and execute their own learning plans that culminate in an overseas field trip to explore the real estate and construction business in different socio-economic environments, and 2) Professional Practice which requires students to gain professional experience during their internship in companies related to the real estate and construction business. These two Discipline Electives provide experiential learning platform for students to enhance their personal, academic and professional development.
BSc(Surv) is recognised by the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), and Pacific Association of Quantity Surveyors (PAQS). Graduates have complete flexibility to choose a surveying specialism from five HKIS divisions, namely General Practice Surveying, Quantity Surveying, Building Surveying, Planning and Development, and Property and Facility Management, along with a broad range of RICS pathways.
Full professional status is gained after an appropriate length of approved practical experience and passing the professional assessment required by the corresponding professional bodies (e.g. HKIS, RICS, CIOB, or PAQS). Members of the HKIS are eligible to register as "Registered Professional Surveyor (RPS)" under the Surveyors Registration Ordinance (Cap.417); members of the RICS can use the designation "Chartered Surveyor"; and members of the CIOB can use the designation "Chartered Builder" or "Chartered Construction Manager".
