I welcome you to the Department of Quantity Surveying, University of Benin (UNIBEN). Quantity Surveying primarily focuses at ensuring that construction resources are economically allocated and utilised. ‘Cost’ being the common metric for performance measurement of economic resources, Quantity Surveying therefore strives to secure cost optimisation and financial probity in every construction-related transaction.
The Department of Quantity Surveying (UNIBEN) was established in year 2014. Our Department has lecturers that are excited to meet new Quantity Surveying-related challenges, and to help students comprehend the multi-disciplinary domain of Quantity Surveying. As the global and Nigerian economies experience turbulences, construction clients are demanding more accurate and timely cost information on which to base their decisions.
The honours degree programme of our Department therefore reflects the dynamics of the construction industry, in order to produce expert quantity surveyors that can meet global performance standards. The programme leverages the well-entrenched engineering and management science resources of our University in offering modern quantity surveying skills to our students. In addition, entrepreneurship, information and communications technology (ICT) and leadership courses are embedded in the programme to make our students industry-ready on graduation.
The Department welcomes suitably qualified students that have passions for subject areas such as construction: technology, law, procurement, measurement, and management.
