As a profession,building surveying a range of career prospects. Surveyors provide advice on many aspects of design and construction, working on properties from historic buildings to new developments, as well as maintenance, repair and restoration.

Although technical knowledge is required as a core competency, the construction industry needs graduates with sound practical experience.

This article explores how work shadowing can be used as a tool for problem-based learning. Case study of University of West London's BSc Building Surveying depicts how problem-based learning can provide a valuable practical experience to students.
