Surveying Engineering Technology

Program Code: SET.AAS
Associate in Applied Science

Surveying Engineering Technology prepares students for employment in the land surveying field. Surveying involves mapping features of the land as well as property boundaries, and laying out construction lines and grades. It involves the use of computerized electronic equipment for land based as well as satellite assisted measurements, and the preparation of maps by computer aided design (CAD). Jobs in the field for those seeking immediate employment range from field crew member to CAD operator, and are typically found in surveying firms, consulting engineering firms, utility companies, and in the engineering departments of governmental agencies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can students who major in Surveying Engineering Technology transfer to a four-year college or university?

Students may choose to participate in the Joint Admissions Program with the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Articulation agreements with public and private institutions offer students who earn the A.A.S. degree the opportunity to transfer their coursework to the four-year institution.

Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major?

Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or completion of the appropriate class.

How long will it take to complete this degree?

Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.
