Career Choices Day
Career Choices Day provides school leavers, or adults looking to upskill, the opportunity to come onto campus, and check out areas of study.
Quantity surveyors manage the finances of construction projects. A working day could include liaising with clients, industry professionals and site workers; measuring quantities of materials; estimating; preparing claims, cash flows and construction programmes and much more.
This programme will equip you to work on small-to-medium-scale building projects. Once you have gained experience you will be able to extend your work to include larger and more complex building projects and carry out more complex tasks of cost planning and financial control.
Through a range of modules you will develop the skills for preliminary estimating and feasibility studies, quantification, pricing of construction and associated work, and financial administration of a project during construction.
Quantity surveying isn’t all textbooks and theory. You’ll be talking to experienced site managers on commercial and residential construction sites. You’ll create a structural scale model of a residential building in order to interpret and apply current legislation.
In your first year you will work on a project that will include measuring up and pricing the components of an actual house, and in your second year you’ll do the same with a commercial building.
Wintec tutors are highly trained and qualified in their specialist fields. Close connections with the New Zealand Institute of Quantity Surveyors mean they are right up to date with what you need to know for future employment.
They’ll give you opportunities for practical experience through project work, site visits and investigations. Wintec’s strong partnerships with industry leaders bring valuable resources such as guest speakers, current skills and knowledge.

Do you excel in your job but have no qualification to back it up? We can help you get qualified through our Recognition of Prior (RPL) Learning Tool.
While many people have gained work and life experience equivalent to that of formal study, they don't have that formal qualification to substantiate it. RPL allows you to use your current knowledge and experience towards gaining a recognised qualification through Informal Transfer of Credit.
If you are interested in applying, you can do so by emailing your profile through to: email@example.com.
Your profile will be forwarded to the relevant Team Manager to look at and determine if you may be eligible for recognition of prior learning. Once this has been determined, a consultation meeting will be arranged between yourself and the Team Manager. There is a $75 fee for this consultation. At the consultation, the Team Manager will discuss which modules they believe you have the experience to gain Informal Transfer of Credit for and also what documentation you will need to supply.
