DEPARTMENT OF BUILDING SURVEYING

OVERVIEW :

Building Surveying is a rapidly growing profession in Malaysia and its services are highly needed in all economics and development situation. Its scope begins from the very early stage of planning a development project to construction management, maintenance and up to conservation of historical and architecturally important building. To address the shortage of professional Building Surveyors in the country, Building Surveying Programme at undergraduate level was introduced in the Universiti Malaya (UM) in 1995. This programme is recognized locally and internationally by professional bodies i.e Royal Institution of Surveyors Malaysia (RISM) and The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), UK. The degree can also be pursued at higher learning institutions abroad especially in United Kingdom, Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand or through professional examination conducted by the Institution of Surveyors Malaysia.

In the Malaysian context, a professional Building Surveyor is a qualified person, by examination and experience, and a member of the Institution of Surveyors Malaysia. The main roles and responsibility of a Building Surveyor in Malaysia as prescribed by the Institution of Surveyors Malaysia covers the areas of Building Control, Maintenance & Conservation of Building and Building Performance and Audit

Career as a professional Building Surveyor includes every aspect of a building life cycle from its planning stage to restoration, demolition and redevelopment. A competent Building Surveyor will be able to manage, organize, monitor, assess and coordinate construction works while acting as the main link to other professional services in the construction industry.

A qualified Building Surveyor can work at Government/Semi-Government Departments such as Local Authorities, higher learning institutions (both public and private) or at private sector organisations such as developers, financial and banking institutions, consultant firms, insurance companies and research organisations.
