Land Surveying

Land or 'Site' Surveying forms a part of several programmes of study including civil engineering, architecture, construction, surveying, geography, environmental management, forensic science and archaeology.

The purpose of studying surveying techniques is to familiarise students with the range of survey methods & equipment that are available today to enable them to either carry out a survey themselves, or to deal effectively with the commissioning of professional surveying services.
