History of Study Program

In 1997 - started working with UTM
- Sending prospective teaching staff (prospective lecturers) from UBH to UTM
1999 - 2 prospective lecturers continue their studies at UTM
In 2002 - the Economic Engineering Construction (TEK) study program was opened
In 2005 - 19 studsents of the first TEK graduated

The term Quantity Surveying (QS) was first used in England in the 19th century and is now used in almost all the countries of the Commonwealth. Initially, QS was a professional in the construction field who was tasked with calculating and measuring the amount of construction work (building) and at the same time estimating the cost. However, now QS expertise has developed along with the development of the field of construction and the needs of stake holders. The idea of making  QS in Indonesia around 1970 brought by foreigners from England, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore with the intention of opening a branch of the company in Indonesia. Until 2005, QS practitioners in Indonesia were scholars with diplomas obtained from foreign universities (England, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore).

The birth of regulations in construction services requires the involvement of people with special skills. Meanwhile, globalization in all sectors forces us to look for opportunities to compete with foreign players who will be free to enter Indonesia. Seeing these opportunities and needs, Bung Hatta University offers a Quantity Surveyor professional education program for Diploma Three (D-III) educations. The QS D-III program was opened in 2002 based on the Decree of the Minister of National Education Number: 1333 / D / T / 2002 dated July 5, 2002 with the name of Economic Construction Engineering Study Program. In 2005, the first 19 construction economic engineering students graduated from Bung Hatta University. Currently the Construction Economic Engineering Study Program has been accredited B from BAN-PT.
