The engineering cost major is based on the theory of economics and management, and the interdisciplinary subject of social science and natural science led by engineering project management theory and method. At present, almost all projects require full budget from start-up to completion, including start-up budget, project progress grant, project completion settlement, etc., whether it is the owner or construction unit, or the third-party cost consulting agency, must have their own core budget staff. Therefore, the demand for engineering cost professionals is very high. The employment channels are wide with high salary, while development opportunities are broad with freedoom.
From the perspective of the owner (investor), the project cost refers to the construction cost of the project, that is, the total fixed asset investment cost that is expected to be paid or actually paid for the construction of a project. These expenses mainly include equipment and equipment purchase fees, construction and installation engineering fees, other construction costs, reserve fees, construction period interest, and fixed assets investment direction adjustment tax (this fee is currently suspended).
From the perspective of the contractor, the project cost refers to the project price, that is, the construction and installation project formed by the bidding and other transaction methods in the construction of a project, expected or actually in the market of land, equipment, technical labor and contracting. Price and construction project total price.
The difference between the coster and the budgeter:
1. The concept is different
There is a world of difference between the budget clerk and the cost clerk. The budget is only a small subject within the cost range.
2. The scope of work is different
The budgetary staff emphasizes the budget rather than other work related to project cost, while the cost is more extensive (can be engaged in bidding, bidding, auditing, etc.)
3. The filing mechanism is different
As long as the budgetary officer receives the certificate and the chapter, he basically does not care how to practise, and the cost engineer must register, and the local cost management department conducts management and continuing education and training.
4. The scope of use is different
Generally speaking, budget holders can only practise in the province, while costers are applicable nationwide. The project budget is a detailed estimate of the investment (or cost) before the project is implemented. The project cost is the investment (or cost) of the project, or the calculation, control and research of the cost. The content level of project cost includes budget, estimation, budgetary estimate and final account. Now it has been renamed as a cost clerk.
After graduation, students can work in engineering cost consulting companies, construction companies, building decoration and decoration engineering companies, engineering construction supervision companies, real estate development companies, accounting and auditing firms, government departments and enterprises, infrastructure departments and other enterprises and institutions.
Engaged in engineering cost bidding agency, construction project investment and financing and investment control, bidding and quotation decision, project final settlement, engineering cost analysis, engineering consulting and so on.
