What We Currently Offer
The Bachelor of Science Degree (Honours) in Land Economy aims to give students an understanding of the principles and methods of modern land economy, and the skills to apply the knowledge in solving theoretical and practical problems in real estate and other related fields in relation to societal needs for national development. Ultimately, the goal of the programme is to meet the real estate industry sector needs, including those dealing with research and education. Some students can also opt for the Diploma in Land Economy rather than the degree, depending on their needs and qualifications.
