Surveying or land surveying is the technique, profession, and science of accurately determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional position of points and the distances and angles between them, commonly practiced by licensed surveyors, and members of various building professions. These points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are often used to establish land maps and boundaries for ownership, locations (building corners, surface location of subsurface features) or other governmentally required or civil law purposes (property sales).

The surveying program serves three distinct purposes:

  1. Provides students who have little or no experience in the field the skills needed for employment as a surveyor
  2. Gives those already working in the profession additional knowledge needed to prepare for their professional licensing examinations
  3. Gives licensed professionals opportunities for upgrade training on new issues and equipment in surveying.
