Answer:  BSC statistics, as with many courses in the country has as many graduates as there are job opportunities. There are certainly rewarding jobs that are at the top end, but you really have to stand out. Some of the fields that statistics graduates work in include research in market research firms such as synovate, consumer insight, infotrak, strategic PR etc. They also do work in the finance industry where the mathematical and quantitative skills are important. The ones who work in the finance industry do take additional professional qualifications on the side, such as Certified Public Accountants (CPA), Certified
Financial Analyst (CFA) or the ACCA exams. In the finance industry, you can work in banks, in accounting and professional auditing firms such as PWC, KPMG, Deloitte, Ernst&Young and many more accounting firms, in insurance industry, where they help calculate premiums and compensation levels for clients. It would help if you also pursued qualifications such as CPA, CFA or some computer certifications if you want to work in the finance/insurance In other research organisations e.g Kemri, KARI where they help compile research data for meaningful interpretation.

About quantity survey in JKUAT, it is not offered in JKUAT. It is offered in UON and other universities. However, JKUAT offers a related program, BSC in Construction Management.(It's a five year course) You will learn technical drawing, how to conduct a project and and how to manage property.
