The real estate programme at the Helsinki University of Technology (TKK) has undergone major changes during the past decades. Internationalisation, change of values in society, employment, new professional tasks, occupational demands and relations between science and profession have all influenced to the demand to modify the real estate education. In order to respond to these changes the programme has been developed from the traditional surveyor education to a multidiscipline programme, which produces multi-skilled real estate professionals and operates in tight co-operation with professional bodies and companies. The aim of this presentation is to give an overview of how the real estate programmes (M.Sc. and B.Sc.) have been developed to respond to the changes in the professional field. By identifying key issues, experiences and challenges in the curriculum development we can provide knowledge and some practical tips for other real estate educators. At the end the gained benefits of the curriculum development and some future challenges are discussed.
