What is Quantity Surveying?

Quantity Surveying is the expert profession on construction costs and contracts by managing the entire life-cycle of a project to ensure efficient and effective production.

Did you love Legos as a kid and always built big and complex structures instead of leaving them lying around? Were you the treasurer of your class or maybe society back in school? Maybe you were always given the task of calculating or estimating how much a project would cost. Were you always good with money (not good at spending it, but good at being economical of course!) If this sounds like you, then you should consider a career in quantitative surveying.

Quantity surveying is the study of managing a construction project, especially to ensure that construction costs and production are managed as efficiently as possible. Just like its’ name, a quantity surveyor prepares a ‘schedule of quantities’, estimates the material and labour costs, and other things seeking to minimise the costs of a project and enhance value for money, while still achieving the required standards and quality.

How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Quantity Surveying course?

Eye for detail

You’re the kind of person who notices the odd stain on an otherwise clean shirt or t-shirt and don’t want to use on a date or an important meeting because even if they don’t notice you, you’ll know! Suffice to stay, you pay attention to the smallest of details. In fact, the smaller the detail, the bigger the significance it has, to you at least.

Visionary

You knew exactly what you wanted to become back in secondary school. So much so, that you have your entire plan mapped out, from your pre-university course till your Master’s. You know exactly where you want to study, how much it’s going to cost (down to the last cent), and what subjects you’ll have to grapple with. Then why are you here? Well to double-check with the best education site in Malaysia of course!

Economical

When you’re headed out with friends, you know exactly how much you’re going to spend, and you try to have as much fun as possible within that same amount. They aim to get the best results at the least cost and with the lowest impact on the environment possible.

Good with numbers

You’re the one who everyone wanted to ‘borrow’ add maths homework from, back in school (But of course you said no, because that wouldn’t be right!) While everyone else struggled with maths as they fumbled with fingers all out, slowly curving one by one into their palm, you already finished all the sums, checked the answer (A formality) and packed your bag to head home.
