There is currently a severe skills shortage in the UK for quantity surveyors with expertise in mechanical and electrical installations - consequently, this course has an exceptionally high graduate employment record. Qualified mechanical and electrical quantity surveyors find employment in the building sector or in specialist fields including nuclear power.

Studying this course will provide you with the skills demanded by clients who rely on a quantity surveyor’s specialist mechanical and electrical knowledge and judgement to keep a project running smoothly. This programme will equip you with a professional understanding of procurement, financial and risk management and lifecycle cost management, as they apply to the construction industry. In addition to formalising your knowledge of traditional quantity surveying, you’ll receive a solid grounding in cutting-edge developments applying to mechanical and electrical works.

As this full masters degree is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), you will be educated to the highest industry standards and are granted exemption from RICS academic entry requirements.
