Welcome to the Department of Surveying. We were known as Department of Built Environment (DBE) before DBE expanded to Department of Architecture and Sustainable Design and Department of Surveying in 2013. The two taught programmes of our department are Bachelor of Science (Hons) Quantity Surveying and Master of Project Management. Both of the programmes under the department are fully accredited by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).
The BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying meets the standards of quality comparable with international benchmarks established by the world’s leading professional body such as Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Board of Quantity Surveyors Malaysia (BQSM). We are also among the partnering universities signing the Memorandum of Coorperation (MoC) with Royal Institution of Surveyors Malaysia (RISM).
The four-year BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying provides a structured pathway for students to pursue a career as a professional Quantity Surveyor.
