A professional diploma course on quantity surveying, offered by the University of Macau’s (UM) Centre for Continuing Education (CCE), has been accredited by the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES).
Macao’s construction and engineering industry has experienced rapid development in recent years, with an increasing number of large-scale international construction projects in the city. In view of this, the CCE launched a professional diploma course on quantity surveying, to help industry practitioners acquire a thorough understanding of the latest methods for calculating quantities and concepts in the field commonly used worldwide. The course also aims to help practitioners upgrade their knowledge and skills and align themselves with international standards.
During his visit to Macao, CICES President David Loosemore presented graduation certificates to CCE Director Prof Leung Shing On, who received the certificates on behalf of all participants in the course. Both parties then held a meeting to explore opportunities for future collaboration.
Since 2014, the CCE has been offering various professional certificate and diploma courses on quantity surveying for local industry practitioners. The courses were held in collaboration with the CICES, the Architects Association of Macau, the Macau Institution of Engineers, the Association of Macau Engineering Consultant Companies, the Macao Association of Building Contractors and Developers, Macau Construction Association, and Macau Construction Machinery Engineering Association.
