BSc (Hons) in Quantity Surveying
Over the last two years, I gave myself a challenge on studying for a bachelor’s degree. After doing some research, I found a programme that appeared to be suitable for me, Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Quantity Surveying organized and partnered by the University of Wolverhampton, U.K. and CityU SCOPE. It was not easy being a part-time student with a full-time job, I am glad that all the modules are now completed, I was released the moment I submitted my final dissertation. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the module leaders, tutors, supervisors, and course administrators for their support, valuable advice, guidance, influence, and inspiration to me.
Looking back, it’s all worth it!
18-month programme is never an easy task for a full-time worker. Working as a quantity surveyor with only an engineering degree is a constraint to me since I did not understand depth the professionalism of a surveyor. Struggling between a master programme or another degree at the very beginning, I finally chose this degree programme organized by the University of Wolverhampton co-jointly with Scope with no regrets.
Through this programme, the basic knowledge of construction, contracts, estimation, measuring techniques and management skills were taught, which a master’s degree may not be able to offer such practical knowledge to me. Not only with theoretical lectures taught by the UK side, practical tutorials were also given by HK teachers with enthusiasm. Persistence and determination are also a remarkable achievement I gained from this programme.
With a wide range of recognition by various professional institution bodies, my next milestone will be a chartered quantity surveyor. Many thanks to all the achievements rewarded from these 18 months and am looking forward to pursuing my next goal.
回想當時誤打誤撞地選擇了Wolverhampton的QS學位課程，轉眼間已是兩年多前的事。這兩年間因為正就讀此課程，令我獲得一份與工料測量相關的工作，課程中所學習的亦令我獲益良多。 經歷此課程後，我認識了很多關於QS的知識。例如taking off和閱讀合約等。希望我能學以致用，在此行業有所貢獻。
從事工料測量這行業除了對工程施工程序要有一定認識外，還要熟識合約條款，才能為公司爭取到最大利益。因此，希望透過進修增進有關知識。這課程包含建築科技、項目成本估算及採購和合同法等知識，對工作有一定幫助。 英國院校以及城大專業進修學院所提供的資源豐富，對學習及撰寫論文甚有幫助。導師經驗豐富，願意細心回答學生提問。此外，課程於近年更得到了RICS的認 可，讓畢業生以較短時間取得專業資格。 雖然以兼讀形式進修比全日制更需要自律，但是工作上所得到的經驗卻能讓我更容易掌握學習課題，也能運用經驗應答考試及功課題目。
