A team of researchers from the Robert Gordon University’s (RGU) Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment have won funding to allow them to continue their work.
The team, which includes partners from North America, South Asia, Australia and Africa, will develop a series of case studies, which aim to explore, analyse and represent the present and likely future directions for surveying education in selected worldwide regions.
Funding for the research is being provided by Council of Heads of Built Environment Education (CHOBE) and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
The new funding will allow the team of researchers to evaluate the current state of education and teaching within the surveying sector.
Professor Richard Laing, from the architecture school, believes the research will provide a great insight for the sector going forward.
He said: “This is an important study for us to undertake, especially as our own approach to education in surveying has always had a global outlook.
“Being able to develop a deeper understanding of how surveying education has developed globally will be fascinating, and will help us and others to identify ways to collaborate in the future.”
