The Quantity Surveying Student Society is an academic society that is striving to be a bridge between industry stakeholders, staff in the department and the members of the society. The ultimate aim of its existence is to develop high calibre professionals and well informed graduates regarding the quantity surveying profession.

The Society is playing an increasingly important role in the development of Quantity Surveying students. Apart from offering Qualifications that meet the requirements of industry, the QS Department also focus on the personal development of our students. Personal development involves interaction with both staff members and fellow students.

The Society provides an ideal opportunity for students to interact with each other (especially over different years and routes of study) and with staff members. In addition, it also provides the student with the opportunity to:

  • Establish future contacts;
  • Make life-long friends, and 
  • Assist in finding a work-life balance while studying at NMMU.

The Society represents the voice of the students registered for the Qualifications offered and is therefore responsible for communicating any grievances that the students may have to staff members.

Although membership to the Quantity Surveying Students’ Society is not compulsory, we strongly urge all our students to become members. We truly believe that membership can only be of benefit to the student, even long after completing his / her studies at NMMU.
