This programme will prepare you for a career in the construction industry – whether you want to work as a quantity surveyor and economic advisor or manager or as building development co-ordinator and manager.

Quantity surveyors are engaged in private practice as partners or employees in professional firms. They may also work for building/civil engineering contractors or sub-contractors, or in government departments, semi-state bodies and public authorities.

In this programme, you’ll gain detailed knowledge and understanding of the technical, economic, legal, financial, managerial and administrative framework within which the construction industry operates. You’ll also learn about the specialised areas of cost and value management, tender documentation, procurement, construction administration and management.

Graduates normally enter the job market as Graduate Quantity Surveyors who can work for general contractors, subcontractors, private-practice consultants, local authorities or any employer that manages costs related to new building, civil engineering, mechanical and electrical, oil or gas industry or refurbishment projects.

Study Abroad Opportunities
You can study German in Years 1-3 and be placed in a German-speaking company in Semester 2 of Year 3. You can also opt to partake in an Erasmus exchange programme.

On graduation you may continue to postgraduate study at TU Dublin or elsewhere.
