Surveying and leveling is common to nearly every civil and construction building activity. This means that almost everywhere in the world, the technically trained man who can do this work has a good living at his finger-tips. It is the kind of job that will appeal to the practical man who likes to spend a good deal of time outdoors, the man who enjoys variety and a change of scene rather than a desk job. Our surveying and leveling course provides top-level training in all the important aspects of this intriguing subject – from applied trigonometry to astronomical determinations. It is designed to give the student a working knowledge of both land and marine surveying techniques and the various conditions likely to be met in field operations.
The program starts from first principles and it is required that persons with a mathematical background will have an added advantage to study the program. At least some exposure to high school level education is required to be able to successfully complete the program.
