The BQS programme is conducted at the Shah Alam campus on full-time and part-time modes. The duration of the BQS programme is three years.
The entry requirement for BQS programme is STPM (Malaysian Higher School Certificate) or a Matriculation Certificate. Candidates with a Diploma in Quantity Surveying from recognized institutions of higher learning or related programme may also apply and credit transfer for certain courses may be given for these students.
