Civil Engineering Major with Land Surveying Option

One of the key disciplines in the management of the environment is surveying engineering. Surveying engineering is a body of technical knowledge that includes the subjects of Geodesy, Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing, Cartography, Map Projections and Geographical Information Systems in addition to the traditional ideas of surveying.

Surveying Engineering provides the technical basis for surveying activity in several areas, such as geodetic and topographic surveys, cadastral and engineering surveys, photogrammetry, digital cartography and geographical information systems.
