About this course

  • The Department of Real Estate and Construction (formerly known as Department of Surveying) was formally established as a new department in June 1984. It is directly associated with the surveying profession through the professional accreditation of its undergraduate program by the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS) and theRoyal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (UK) (RICS).
  • The Department seeks to meet the academic challenges of the surveying profession from an interdisciplinary base. A large proportion of graduates follow a professional career as surveyors. Surveyors usually develop a specialism and traditionally undergraduate education for these specialist sections has been largely independent, but increasingly the environment of real estate and construction has shown that this position can no longer be sustained. This Department was the first to recognize this and develop a common degree for these major areas which allows students to specialize after graduation rather than before.
  • The Department’s graduate taught courses and its research degree program reflect the same philosophy with a prime objective being to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries in finding solutions to problems associated with land, real estate and construction.
