Surveying Technology Degree
Surveying has changed dramatically with the integration of computers, robotic surveying instruments and global positioning systems into the surveying profession. Students studying Surveying Technology will learn the most current surveying techniques using the latest surveying equipment. Students have the opportunity to become proficient in using electronic total stations, robotic instruments, surveying data collectors and global positioning systems equipment, as well as the supporting computer software programs.
The two-year Associate Degree program is designed for students who wish to follow a career in surveying, with a path towards licensure as a Licensed Land Surveyor or professional land surveyor. Students will learn survey-related computer skills in one of the best-equipped computer labs in New Hampshire. Carlson Survey, Carlson SurvNet, Idrisi, Ashtech GNSS, Mobilemapper Office, and Trimble PathFinder Office software programs are taught in a lab dedicated to surveying and GIS.
Graduates will be skilled in performing topographic and boundary line surveys, as well as construction and engineering surveys. Graduates will be able to perform standard survey calculations such as traverses, horizontal and vertical curves, solar observations, state plane coordinates, quantities and area determinations. Additional surveying skills that the graduate will take into the job market include the ability to research deeds and public records, an understanding of the American legal system and experience in using sophisticated global positioning systems receivers and software.
