Course Summary

Surveying roles encompasses all activities concerned with measuring and recording information about the world that surrounds us. A surveyor can work in many different environments for a variety of reasons; building, residential, commercial, environmental and quantity. The roots of surveying trace back ancient Egyptian history, and its practice has been fundamental to the progression of human-kind. Today, surveying holds just as much relevance, yet the demand has drastically increased due to an enhanced interest in developing and managing the physical world. This programme is taught by the internationally renowned Camborne School of Mines (CSM), a combined world-class mining school and geoscience department. With accreditation from both the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the Chartered Institute of Civil Engineering Surveyors, this MSc is recognised by professional associations around the world. The Career Zone (CAS) at our Cornwall Campus provides high-quality careers information and guidance to students of all disciplines. Our experienced careers team can give you individual support whilst you are at the University and after you have graduated. Services include talks, confidential careers interviews and an extensive careers library of reference books, magazines and journals. A new computer suite is also available for accessing online careers information, vacancy services and specialist software on, for example, sources of funding for courses and worldwide volunteering. In this course, students can also exit with PGDip award.
