This Honours Degree in Building Surveying trains students for entry into building surveying practice, and for providing a professional building surveying service.

While Building Surveyors are qualified to design and oversee the construction of new buildings, they specialise in the sustainable management, maintenance and upgrade of existing buildings, work that is necessary irrespective of economic conditions.

There is a growing demand for building surveying expertise. Environmental awareness, sustainability issues, economic restraint and building legislation dictate that increasing emphasis is placed on the effective utilisation of proposed and existing buildings. In particular, property owners, developers and purchasers are encouraged to more closely assess the life cycle performance of proposed and existing buildings and the possible reuse of existing buildings as an alternative to demolition and rebuilding.

The roles of the professions associated with the development and use of buildings are continually changing in response to changes in owner / user attitudes and needs, building technologies, legislation, the economic environment, work practices and information technology. In this regard, this Honours Degree course prepares graduates for a building surveying profession which, with its broad-based education and training encompassing physical and social sciences, is well placed to provide, directly and indirectly, an ever-increasing range of services to those seeking to develop and utilise building assets. It also benefits from a formal work preparation and placement module in stage 3, ensuring that students develop key technical and interpersonal skills and foster a commercial awareness prior to completing the course.

This course is unique in the Republic of Ireland in that it is the only such course that is specifically recognised in the Building Control Act 2007. It is also currently the ONLY Building Surveying course recognised by the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI) as meeting the education standard leading to recognition as Chartered Building Surveyor in this jurisdiction.

Graduates holding this qualification will also be recognised worldwide through the SCSI affiliation with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
