Masters in Surveying in the Netherlands

Study Surveying Masters Programmes

Surveying, also referred to as building surveying by some universities, looks at assessing the two- or three-dimensional positions of points, as well as the distances and angles between them. This information is important if any kind of building or construction is due to happen in a space, as it allows the surveyor to understand the environment and pass on any relevant information to those involved in the construction.

There are several career paths available to graduates of surveying. These include surveyor, civil engineer and construction manager, among others. In some countries, you may also need a professional qualification in order to work as a surveyor.

Your masters degree will be delivered through a mixture of lectures and seminars, as well as your final independent project or dissertation. Modules you study could include:

  • Building pathology
  • Health and safety
  • Sustainable development
  • Planning and conservation
