Course content

This is a full-time one-year programme to enable graduates in geography, earth sciences, economics and engineering to train as professional surveyors who have knowledge both of modern land surveying techniques and the principles and application of land and environmental management. Graduate destination statistics show more than 90% of students obtaining related employment.

The programme introduces and develops surveying practice through a module that stretches over both semesters. Other modules provide training in land management, planning, general management and environmental control. There is a fieldtrip where both the surveying skills and environmental/land management knowledge are put to the test as a major case-study. The final part of the programme is a dissertation that can form part of an industrial partnership.

The programme is accredited by both the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Institute of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES).
