The program has been designed in consultation with the Australian Institute of Building Surveyors (AIBS) to ensure that the material covered is appropriate for people engaged in this field. Through this consultation graduates are assured that their qualifications meet the requirements of the profession. Graduates of the Master of Building Surveying program will meet the requirements under the AIBS Framework for accreditation as a Building Surveyor. The Building Professionals Board of New South Wales (BPB) will recognise graduates of the Master of Building Surveying program as meeting the requirements of Levels A1, 2, 3 and 4.
