2. Studios

Studios provide students with the means to improve their knowledge and understanding of the courses taught in lectures as well as to develop their skills ad competencies through the practical application of the theoretical knowledge on given problems or projects. Studio based courses are such as those under the measurement and documentation group. During studio sessions, the course lecturers, in collaboration with lecturers of related courses will provide a simulated or real-life project for the students to work on. Students will be divided into groups of 10-15 students and a tutor will be assigned to each group. Studios are also aimed at developing students’ ability to work in groups, communicate effectively and develop problem solving ability.

3. Laboratory and Field Works

Laboratory and field work will supplement the lecture materials of appropriate courses.

4. Problem Based Learning (PBL)

Problem Based Learning is a very important component of teaching and learning process. PBL is implemented in a number of courses in this programme. This teaching and learning approach helps students to reinforce their understanding on the course content.

5. Industrial Training

All third year students are required to undergo a twenty four week Industrial Training at Quantity Surveying establishments establishments of their choice. At the end of the training, students are required to submit an Industrial Training Report to the Department for assessment purposes.

6. Academic Visit

The programme will include visits to various organizations and sites related to the profession and the construction industry. Besides these visits, students are also encouraged to have visits meant to develop their social and moral standings.

7. Undergraduate Project

A final year student is required to undertake a study in an area or specialised field of quantity surveying. The product of the study is an academic writing and an oral presentation. The academic writing must follow guidelines and format requirements set by the department and university. each student is supervised by a lecturer throughout the study.

Student Academic Assessment

A variety of assessment methods are used to match the learning outcomes of  programme and students learning styles.

  1. Examinations, tests and quizzes are valueable methods for assessing breadth of knowledge.
  2. Written assignments are used to assess not only factual and theoretical knowledge but also the ability to solve problems and articulate an argument – key transferable skills. In the final semesters of the programme, a greater emphasis is placed upon the analysis, synthesis and evaluation of materials.
  3. Case study analyses and presentations to assess reasoning skills and ability to apply learned material to real-life situations.
  4. Design projects, reports and work samples to assess competence in practical skills and techniques.
  5. Poster and oral presentations, video production to assess communication and presentation skills.
  6. Seminar papers and critical reviews to assess ability to analyse and synthesis information.
  7. Project work assesses ability to work independently and collaboratively, search and critically review relevant literature and present findings in an academic manner in both written and verbal form.
  8. Evidence based industrial training reports to document the students’ performance in professional placement.
  9. Online assessments, including self-tests, quizzes and surveys.
