Graduate Building Surveyor, Jones Lang LaSalle

BSc (Hons) Building Surveying

Read more

From building surveying and quantity surveying to project management, planning and law, my course gave me the diverse knowledge I require in my current role. My tutors inspired me to learn more about this industry and introduced me to AutoCad software, which has been invaluable for my job. The hands-on experience I gained gave me that extra step up the career ladder to help me succeed.

As a graduate engineer, you could work for consultants, contractors, local authorities or government agencies. You will be able to contribute to the design, construction and maintenance of a variety of infrastructure projects. You could also specialise in areas such as structures, transportation, water supply and treatment, and power generation and supply. If you wish to further your studies, you could progress on to an accredited technical postgraduate course. 

  • Civil Engineering Technician
  • Construction Surveyor
  • Construction Inspector
Your future career is our business. That's why we offer further study opportunities across all our subject areas. Our postgraduate courses are a great way to enhance the skills you have already learnt, benefit from our links with industry and give you a CV that will catch the eye of employers.
Our dedicated Jobs and Careers team offers expert advice and a host of resources to help you choose and gain employment. Whether you're in your first or final year, you can speak to members of staff from our Careers Office who can offer you advice from writing a CV to searching for jobs.

MODULES & LEARNING

Enhance your understanding of the properties of materials in both the design and construction phases of any civil engineering project.

We will enhance your mathematical skills so that you can find solutions to technical problems, manipulate and solve equations, and utilise data production and statistical methods to solve construction problems.

Develop your knowledge of civil engineering procedures in the professional and legal working environment.

An insight into the techniques of observation and calculations using computing technology to collect, manipulate and display geospatial data.

Take a look at the behaviour of structures - forces, stresses, strain, tension, compression and bending - and recognise the role of materials testing.

You will present proposals for developing a brownfield site. As part of a team, you will also design, construct and test a model structure.

Civil Engineering Technology Project (part-time only)

An introduction to the factors which influence the sustainability of materials within construction, helping you to appreciate the rationale behind different approaches to structural design.

Learn about structural geology and the identification of minerals and rocks for engineering purposes.

Enhance your knowledge of factors which affect highway and traffic engineering, including characteristics of urban and rural roads, and pavement structure.

A further insight into properties of materials and their use and deterioration in service. In particular, you will study concrete - its design, use on site and the deterioration of reinforced concrete structures.

Build your understanding of the commercial and contractual procedures involved in delivering civil engineering projects, such as preparing detailed risk assessments and recognising different contract types.

We will build on your expertise in the concepts of structural mechanics and how these are used to analyse a variety of structures.

Examine local and national control frameworks, focusing on the techniques used to set out complex curves and to measure movement in structures.

We'll build your understanding of the behaviour of fluids. You'll study engineering problems involving pipe flow, open channel flow systems and investigate flow measuring techniques.

Demonstrate the ability to analyse a range of development options and to provide justification for your preferred solution.

Utilise the skills you have learnt to produce a major piece of work to a brief based upon a simulated industrial scenario, demonstrating sound engineering and management judgement.

Focus on mathematical methods that support decision making in civil engineering. You'll look at statistical analysis, operational research, financial appraisal and traditional mathematical techniques.

Enhance your awareness of structural behaviour and limit state design principles. You'll develop your analysis and design expertise in order to produce code compliant structural solutions to a professional standard.

Explore infrastructure asset management - the on-going maintenance, repair and upgrading of civil engineering infrastructure through the whole life cycle.

We'll develop your appreciation of site investigation techniques, particularly relating to the interpretation of geotechnical data. You'll look at design applications related to water flow, effective stress parameters, slope stability, foundation bearing capacity and retaining walls.

A further insight into the factors which affect highway and traffic engineering, developing your expertise in specialist areas of highway design, construction and maintenance.

Our course team will help you secure work placements during the summer and your sandwich year. This provides you with a great opportunity to gain practical experience in the workplace which will help you apply for jobs when you graduate.

You will also be supported in recording your initial professional development for membership of the accrediting institutions.

To broaden your industry knowledge the course team also arrange regular personal development sessions. These are generally provided by leading industry professionals and will assist you in choosing an appropriate area of civil engineering to enter on graduation. We also have close links with the Institution of Civil Engineers and host a number of regional events for you to attend.
