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 tier 2 laptop computer is required for students entering the surveying engineering technology program. 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 engineering technology program produces graduates who:
Alfred State surveying engineering technology AAS graduates may enter directly into the construction supervision BTech, the interdisciplinary studies BTech, the surveying and geomatics engineering technology BS, or the technology management BBA degree program.
Employment and continuing education rate of 100 percent – 100 percent continued their education.
|Enrollment (based on Fall census)|
The surveying engineering technology (AAS) program is 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.
Required: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2
Entry level of student into math and composition/literature sequences is a function of student’s high school preparation and mathematics and English placement examinations.
Math through technical calculus I must be completed. Freshman composition and introduction to literature must be taken.
Students who believe they need a reasonable accommodation to properly participate in this program may contact Melanie Ryan in the Office of Accessibility Services. This office may be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 607-587-4506. Please keep in mind that some accommodations may take time to implement, so students seeking accommodations are encouraged to contact OAS as early as possible.
