Programme Characteristics

Applicants to the BRE Scheme may choose from the following three programmes:

BSc (Hons) in Building Engineering and Management

This programme provides students with a rich education in building engineering and construction management. Our graduates are in great demand in the professional building and construction management sectors because they are well prepared to adapt to the changing needs of the construction industry and possess the expertise necessary to plan, coordinate, supervise, and control the multiple complex processes involved in building projects.

BSc (Hons) in Property Management

This programme equips graduates to provide strategic business solutions for corporations and institutions that capitalise on real estate as a business asset, deploying real estate to enhance business value and competitiveness, optimise corporate resources, improve users’ experiences, and prepare for the trends of tomorrow. This is a professional education programme with a global and practical vision. Offering a wide range of subjects related to building and real estate, the programme provides an interdisciplinary education in property and housing management and facilities and real estate asset management.

BSc (Hons) in Surveying

This programme nurtures future professionals in the fields of building surveying, general practice surveying (real estate), planning and development, property and facility management, and quantity surveying (construction economics). Graduates possess the knowledge and skills necessary to lead strategy making in the land, property, and construction sectors. 

Characteristics of Scheme Based Admission

Approximately 40% of students in the Scheme will receive an unconditional offer for placement to their preferred programmes / majors without any restrictions, determined by the ranking of their DSE admission scores and interview scores for JUPAS students, or by means of other relevant outstanding academic results for non-JUPAS students.

The remaining approximately 60% of students will be ranked by their overall GPA scores after one year of study to determine the allocation of their preferred programmes / majors to join in the second year of study.
