Department Of Quantity Surveying
Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) was the first Nigerian university to introduce the Bachelor of Science degree in Quantity Surveying (BSc. QS) programme in 1971. At inception, the programme was resident in the Department of Civil Engineering. In 1972, the Quantity Surveying (QS) along with the Land Surveying (LS) Sections were separated from the Department of Civil Engineering to form an independent and unified department named Department of Surveying. The Department of Surveying produced its first set of graduates in QS in 1974. The QS section of the Department of Surveying attempted to introduce Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree programmes in the 1993/94 session but the programmes were aborted due to the exit of essential staff.
The LS and QS Sections of the Department of Surveying have, based on the approval for separation granted by the University Senate at its meeting of the 26th of August 2007, evolved into two autonomous Departments of Geomatics Engineering and Quantity Surveying respectively. This move also saw the newly created Department of Quantity Surveying being transferred to the Faculty of Environmental Design from the commencement of 2007/2008 academic session with Mr. Y.G. Musa-Haddary as the pioneer Acting Head of Department.
Emphasis is placed on planning, management and economic activities. Furthermore, the programme prepares the graduates to play distinctive and prominent roles in the construction industry.Go to Top
