30 May 2023

Now is the perfect time to skill up online with a valued industry recognised postgraduate qualification in Building Surveying. Whether you are looking to change careers or advance from a technical level construction professional to a Building Engineer, improving your employment prospects, this flexible online course allows you to advance your career future through a funded postgraduate course at DkIT.  

This qualification was developed with industry needs in mind and focuses on areas of skill shortages within the Construction Industry and the Green Economy. The Postgraduate Diploma & MSc in Building Surveying in DkIT is accredited by the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (UK & Internationally). Graduates of this course may progress to become a Chartered Building Surveyor with the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland which works in partnership with RICS, the global professional body for Chartered Surveyors.

This HCI Pillar 1 (Springboard+) funded Postgraduate Diploma in Building Surveying is a 1-year full-time conversion programme providing for construction graduates to become educated for a career in Building Surveying/Building Engineering in Ireland and abroad. It has been developed as an alternative route into the Building Surveying profession other than by way of the traditional honours undergraduate degree.

Kevin Hollingsworth, Managing Director of Omega Surveying Services, and graduate of DkIT Said

“I started off in construction studies and progressed into building surveying. The industry is a problem-solving profession and this course suits people who like solving problems and providing realistic solutions for implementation. This course hones the skills that suit the profession”. Kevin who has hired several graduates from the DkIT Building Surveying course added “the calibre of people from this course are exceptional and they are truly industry ready”.

This postgraduate Building Surveying course is the first of its kind in Ireland allowing students to partake online (full-day Monday and half-day Friday). This online delivery enables participants to continue to work while advancing their career as a property professional. The course also incorporates a semester in building surveying work placement which provides students with an opportunity to gain further structured and professional work experience, in a work-based learning environment, as part of their planned programme of study

Dr Breda Brennan, Head of School of Engineering said

“We are absolutely delighted with the industry’s reaction and feedback to this much needed course which we contribute to our close collaboration with industry experts. Due to the programme’s popularity and the fact that its online and can be accessed from anywhere in Ireland we are now thrilled to report we have increased our intake by double this year”.
