About Quantity Surveying

Quantity Surveyors play an increasingly critical role in all building projects within the construction industry. As the Building and construction sector grows, the need for skilled quantity surveyors to meet quality construction works standards is growing.

Using their experience and extensive knowledge of the construction process, quantity surveyors are responsible for all procurement activities as well as the monitoring and controlling of construction-related costs of different types of building projects.

Quantity Surveyors work closely with other professionals such as the Architects and Engineers to successfully deliver building projects that meet the cost and quality objectives of their clients.

This KNEC Diploma in Quantity Surveying is a 3-year full-time programme comprising diploma core competency courses, measurement and contracts courses, business and management courses, information technology courses and life skills courses.

The aim of this programme is to produce an expert in cost management for both building and civil engineering construction works, well equipped with state-of-the-art skills for excellent cost planning and control, in the position of Quantity Surveyor in the projects.
