RICS members’ work extends from overseeing developments such as shopping malls and leisure centres, to the design and construction of airports, railways, tunnels, industrial parks and modern office buildings, to providing financial services and the management of urban and rural regeneration projects. They are trained to enhance and maximise the performance of a site or building within its environment.
"I would recommend to Australian students at both the secondary and tertiary level to enquire about the benefits of membership of the RICS.
As well as giving students exposure to potential career paths locally and globally, membership will provide access to a wide range of information
