Quantity surveyors are involved, as key players, of the construction processes, and have evolved from the traditional role as merely measurers and recorders of building works. Greater expertise and skill is today demanded by the construction industry because of the sophistication and complexity of present day construction. The Bachelor of Science Honours Degree in Quantity Surveying Programme at NUST is a 4-year practice-oriented programme structured to integrate theoretical knowledge of construction and building science with the professional and practice requirements of the building industry. It includes one academic year of supervised industrial attachment. The industrial attachment is taken in Part III of the programme. The course was set up in August 2000. Students have access to an infrastructure comprising a computer laboratory and library. Public lectures and seminars are also planned. Graduates can look forward to employment by Quantity Surveying consultant firms, Developers, Architects, Engineers (civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical), local government and central government agencies, contractors and subcontractors, in the planning and implementation of a variety of projects. The department is establishing close ties with the construction industry, the Zimbabwe Institute of Quantity Surveyors, the Association of Building Contractors, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and with the Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe. Regional links are also being developed, particularly with Botswana and South Africa.
