Surveying Minor

Program Codes: SRV

Land Surveying involves a combination of engineering oriented mathematics, history and the law. Students in the minor will be applying mathematical calculations to determine locations and to assess the precision and accuracy of their measurements. As boundary laws and regulations are intrinsic to a surveyor’s scope of work throughout the US, students will also learn about specific law cases and how they apply to local, state and federal property regulations. When determining boundary and property issues, the surveyor is often required to determine past owners of the property and associated properties, which requires knowledge of the local history and how to research it.

When the student graduates with this minor, they will have the knowledge and skills to enter the Land Surveying workforce as a contributing member and pursue a career in the Land Surveying field.
