Kieran Dowling, BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying, says that the course provided him with an in-depth knowledge of all areas and really enjoyed the course

"I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years in the Quantity Surveying course where I got to know some great people. The wide range of subjects covered in the course has provided me with an in depth knowledge of all the areas of Quantity Surveying and allows for development into a number of disciplines.

The course stays up to date with all the latest trends in construction like Information Technology and Building Information Modelling which are very useful to know when entering into the industry.

I enjoyed the field trips and working on live group projects as this simulates working conditions in the real world as a Quantity Surveyor.

The lecturers are extremely helpful and approachable and take a keen interest in the students’ academic progression.

The course has an excellent placement program with students getting work experience not just in Ireland, but also further afield in the UK and New York.

I did my industrial placement in New York for 7 months, which was an amazing experience and was offered a full time job with the company on completing my degree."
