Commercial Management and Quantity Surveying at Heriot-Watt is designed to meet the needs of the financial management and quantity surveying sectors. The degree offers a solid theoretical base, combined with a strong focus on industrial relevance.
To enhance your career prospects and international experience, we are now offering our established and standard one year Commercial Management and Quantity Surveying Masters over two years through offering a ‘with Industry Placement’ alternative.
This Commercial Management and Quantity Surveying with Industry Placement option offers a practical experiential element over the traditional one-year degree structure, allowing students to reflect on theory in practice.
The Industry Placement is undertaken between the taught part of the course and the research dissertation. If you cannot or decide not to do the placement option, then you will revert to the standard programme.
Although, the responsibility of finding a suitable placement lies with you, to support you, we are partnering with construction industry professionals and will provide advice on recruiters who offer placement opportunities. You will also have access to the University’s award winning Careers Service.
This programme is newly launched in May 2019. We are seeking accreditation.
