Governmental agencies, private industries, and individuals all benefit from the surveying and mapping of our natural resources and planning of transportation systems, recreational facilities, new cities, and land subdivisions. Using advanced surveying equipment such as the electronic total stations to measure angles and distances, the modern surveyor has learned to increase his/her productivity and measurement accuracy. Particularly exciting about the future of the surveying profession are the emerging technologies of Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and Land Information Systems (LIS).
This program will provide you with a thorough understanding of the basic sciences of mathematics and physics, as well as applied subjects such as graphics and computer-aided drafting and design. The knowledge obtained from these basic courses is applied to a well-rounded study of modern surveying theory and practice.
A laptop computer is required for students entering the surveying engineering technology programs. Laptop specifications are available at www.alfredstate.edu/required-laptops.
Program educational objectives were established with the assistance of the Industrial Advisory Committee and are reviewed periodically. The surveying and geomatics engineering technology program produces graduates who:
Employment and continuing education rate of 100 percent – 100 percent are employed.
|Enrollment (based on Fall census)|
Both the surveying engineering technology (AAS) and the surveying and geomatics engineering technology (BS) are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Accreditation means that the graduates from the AAS program will receive two years of credit toward the total statutory time requirement for licensure as a land surveyor in New York State.
Graduates of the BS program will receive four years of credit toward the total statutory time requirement for licensure as a land surveyor in New York State. The BS graduates are eligible to take the first part of the NCEES licensing exam for land surveying in their senior year, eighth semester, if within 20 semester credit hours of graduation.
Additionally, graduates of the BS program will receive six years of credit toward the statutory time for licensure as a professional engineer in New York State. The BS graduates are eligible to take the first part of the NCEES licensing exam for professional engineer in the fall following their graduation.
Alfred State accepts students from other two-year institutions as juniors into the BS surveying and geomatics engineering technology program with appropriate course work and grade point averages.
Required: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, SAT and/or ACT scores with a recommended combined reading/writing and math SAT score of 1080 or a composite ACT score of 21.
Students in the surveying and geomatics program must meet the following:
