Bachelor of Science in Surveying 理學士(測量學)

BSC(SURV)

Short Description

The BSc Surveying Programme was the first fully integrated undergraduate surveying course world-wide and as such has led the way in terms of surveying education. It covers the full spectrum of real estate and construction businesses, including, for example, real estate development, construction project management, real estate finance and investment, facility management, urban planning, conservation, and urban renewal. A significant difference between this and more conventional courses is the greater emphasis on a comprehensive academic underpinning and perspective required by all real estate and construction professionals.

The programme promotes interdisciplinary learning.  Our students undertake studies in the economic, law, management, technology and innovation, conservation, and research aspects of the entire land development cycle.  The programme has two major components: the lecture courses and surveying studios. The lecture courses define the academic core of the programme whilst the studios provide an environment within which the interdisciplinary nature of the programme can be more fully explored and boundaries tested through an extensive use of real-life case studies and student centered project work.

The BSc(Surveying) programme allows students in their Third Year of Studies to take a credit bearing course, Professional Practice, which requires students to gain professional experience during their internship in companies within the real estate and construction (REC) sector.  In addition, under normal circumstances, around 90% of our students would participate in a semester long exchange programme, visiting universities all around the world, exchanging REC knowledge and practices, and experiencing local culture. Since credits taken in the exchange programme can be transferred, students who participate in the overseas exchange can still graduate as scheduled.  These provide experiential learning platforms for students to enhance their personal, academic and professional development.

Calculation of scores for applicants with more than 1 sitting in HKDSE Examination

In general, most of the programmes offered by HKU consider the best results achieved by candidates in different combination of sittings, except for a few programmes which only consider the latest results.  Few programmes may also impose a penalty on HKDSE repeaters.  The policy on the calculation of scores in combined sittings of HKDSE for the 2022-23 exercise will be finalized at a later stage, which will be posted on our website https://www.hku.hk/dse.
