The three-and-a-half-year Bachelor of Quantity Surveying (Hons) provides a structured pathway for students to pursue a career as a registered Quantity Surveyor. The programme meets the standards of quality comparable with international benchmarks established by professional bodies and the Board of Quantity Surveyors Malaysia, in consultation with the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).
The programme is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the world’s leading professional body for qualifications and standards in property, land and construction.

Measurement is a multi-disciplinary subject supported by numerical proficiency and construction knowledge. Emphasis is also placed on training to improve the students’ technical, management and personal development skills, which provides them with the opportunity to absorb a wider range of knowledge; the ability to adapt to various conditions; and to solve problems creatively and innovatively.

The programme adopts a student-centred teaching and learning approach, which places emphasis on creativity, rationality and innovation with the aim to build a talented and creative workforce for the future. Through the School of Architecture, Building and Design’s variety of expertise, multi-disciplinary cultural experiences and collaboration with a consortium of overseas partner universities, the Bachelor of Quantity Surveying (Hons) will offer students an enriching education.
