Welcome to the School of Surveying and Construction Management.
In this school we teach, research and are professionally active in the areas of surveying (quantity and geomatics), real estate and construction. Please click on Programmes for more information on our degree programmes and view our Gallery of photos of activities.
Our School has been around a long time. We have taught some of the best-known and most reputable surveying and construction professionals in Ireland and even many abroad. Graduates of our School are employed throughout the country in a wide range of property, spatial information sciences and construction related services from traditional construction companies to professional real estate and surveying consultancies, investment advisors, local authorities and the civil service to small local companies, and many are self-employed. Outside the construction, spatial and property industries many graduates have been employed in a wide variety of other fields from banking, law and finance to other areas such as the sustainability, environment and planning.
We are the longest-established and best educators of property, construction and spatial information professionals in Ireland. We will educate you to the standards required by the world's leading professional bodies and equip you with qualifications that are recognised as among the best world-wide, thus enabling you to work in Ireland and abroad.
