Building Surveying - University of Westminster

Building surveying is a dynamic professional discipline which centres on the physical, functional and economic performance of buildings. Around the world, building surveyors offer a wide range of professional services, not only in their traditional role but also in associated disciplines such as project management, facilities management and construction administration. This course will provide you with the principal skills you need as a building surveyor. You will gain a thorough understanding of the construction process, the specifications of building work and the identification and correction of faults in existing buildings. You will also gain knowledge of the professional, managerial and legal aspects of building performance, along with the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development. Our construction courses share a common Year 1, so students interact with those studying different pathways, gain some knowledge of the work of all professionals working in the construction industry, promoting the interdisciplinary nature of the modern construction industry. Throughout the course, construction technology and management remain central, the issue of health and safety is addressed, and the importance of sustainability is considered. All of our courses are delivered using an enquiry-based blended learning approach involving workshops, lectures, tutorials and independent study. Our technology-enhanced learning supports independent study via synchronous online lectures, tutorials and seminars, which are captured and stored to enable you to revisit sessions online after the event. We assess your learning through a variety of methods including project work, essays and exams.
