Course content

Surveying roles encompasses all activities concerned with measuring and recording information about the world that surrounds us. A surveyor can work in many different environments for a variety of reasons; building, residential, commercial, environmental and quantity. The roots of surveying trace back ancient Egyptian history, and its practice has been fundamental to the progression of human-kind. Today, surveying holds just as much relevance, yet the demand has drastically increased due to an enhanced interest in developing and managing the physical world.

This programme is taught by the internationally renowned Camborne School of Mines (CSM), a combined world-class mining school and geoscience department. With accreditation from both the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the Chartered Institute of Civil Engineering Surveyors, this MSc is recognised by professional associations around the world.

Whilst there are other MSc programmes available with the word surveying in their title, there is no other comparable programme in the UK. Content covered in this programme is very unique as aside from covering the fundamentals of surveying, it delves into geomatics, minerals and environmental topics, equipping students with distinctive practical and specialist skills. This varied programme means that upon graduation, our students are not limited to surveying careers in the built environment, and as a result they are recognised and pursued by industry for their diverse knowledge and skills.
